We’ve got six excellent experiences to keep you busy night and day for the whole of February.
1. Projections at City of Lights
Immerse yourself into a world of colour, light and sound. Projections at City of Lights (pictured) is a 360 degree immersive, walk-through experience in the Perth Cultural Centre.
Happening on a continuous loop from 8pm to midnight, you can drop in anytime to witness this incredible visual feast.
2. Witness Stand
Visit a series of bespoke seating tiers extending from Wadjemup (Rottnest Island) to Walyalup (Fremantle).
You will experience a series of specially commissioned sound works paying homage to the ancient stories of Whadjuk country and acknowledging the interruptions to this place caused by colonisation.
Registration required. Capacity limited.
3. Visual Arts
Our visual arts program is filled with incredible work from local artists. Visit the galleries, take it slow and soak in some truly astounding exhibitions.
A few highlights are Everything Is True (pictured) the largest ever assembly of sculptural work by Abdul-Rahman Abdullah, what washes up, the hands should have no peace and SONGS from Patrick William Carter.

From 5pm each night of the Festival (except Monday – hey, we all need one night off!) you’re invited to hang out with friends over a drink and some tunes.
Each week sees a mix of curated playlists, live performances and DJ sets all brought together by a different guest curator, but all featuring a host of incredible WA talent.
