Big City Lights


BIG CITY LIGHTS* 2024 Festival has a lineup of more than 100 artists in more than 40 different locations across Southport CBD from June 21 – July 07, 2024. Back for a second year this festival is bigger and brighter.

 Re-interpreting building facades with large-scale projections, surround sound audio works that envelope the CBD in sonic waves, and interactive installations, films from across the country and so much more!

 Choose your own adventure – wander the streets, ponder the artworks, interact with the installations and lose yourself in the film or live music program.

This year's BIG CITY LIGHTS* festival showcases a dynamic roster of artists renowned for their innovative contributions to the field of visual and digital art. Among the highlights is the bold and experimental, practice of Joan Ross' who investigates the legacy of colonialism in Australia with a particular focus on reconfiguring the colonial Australian landscape and drawing attention to the complex and ongoing issues surrounding the effects of globalisation and colonisation. In Always the Last One At The Party, Ross covers the surface of Australia Fair Tower. 

 Complete your night out by visiting one of your favourite bars and restaurants.

 The 2024 BIG CITY LIGHTS* festival is fun, free and the perfect winter escape. Come once and come again with family and friends.
