GLOW set to illuminate the senses

GLOW is an event like no other. On Saturday 8 July, the Gold Coast Cultural Precinct will transform into a playground of creativity with a myriad of light-based installations and activities.

A laser water show, live music, illuminated art installations, a silent disco, virtual reality experiences, glow-in-the-dark dancers, yoga and tai-chi, a virtual reality room and robot show are just some of the delights awaiting attendees.  Emerging young local artists will also have their work on display.

Patrons are encouraged to wear white and shine bright under the UV lights, with The Design Academy on hand to apply special glow-in-the-dark makeup.

On the live music stage, headliners Fairchild will be supported by Eliza and the Delusionals, Calan Mai, Katie Who and The Wayward Suns.

Eliza and the Delusionals have had a big couple of years, with their track Salt recently making a coveted finalist spot at the Gold Coast Music Awards for Song of the Year.

“With so much great original music coming from the Gold Coast, it felt really rewarding and exciting for our song to be recognised alongside other great artists like Amy Shark,” recalls frontwoman Eliza Klatt.

Since forming in 2015, the group has played alongside artists including Ali Barter, Polish Club and Killing Heidi, and have just gotten back from showcasing overseas at Canadian Music Week 2017. Eliza tells us this is their first time at GLOW.

“It’s been a while since we have been part of a local festival, and we’re really excited about it!”

Peckish? The GLOW street food precinct will cater to all tastes and ensure guests won’t go hungry.  Wander down to the Winter Wonderland Sweets Garden to have some dessert or grab a coffee. Nobbys icon Cambus Wallace will host a ‘glow bar.’

GLOW is a free, family friendly, night time digital arts event which runs from 5.00pm – 10.00pm on 8 July. You can leave the car at home, catch the G:link to Surfers, then get a free water shuttle from Cavill Avenue to the Evandale pontoon.
