Docklands to light up with fire

01 Jun 2017

The much-awaited Docklands Firelight Festival will illuminate Docklands’ waterfront with fireworks, fire breathing, sculpture burning and lantern procession from June 30 to July 2.

Firelight will activate NewQuay promenade and the north part of Harbour Esplanade. The three-day festival will feature a variety of roving local and international musicians and performers, including:

  • All-female jazz troupe Chaos Magnet;
  • French saxophone and accordion duo Christophe and Phillipe;
  • Uptown Brown with his multiple-instrument “Goodtimes Gyratorscope”;
  • European folk trio Ame Rome;
  • Melbourne-based self-proclaimed musical junkyard Lily and King;
  • Balkan band Vardos;
  • Middle Eastern ensemble Alwan; and
  • American-style percussion group D2.

Fireworks Dance Company will mesmerise the crowd with cultural dance, modern circus, sensual fire artistry, theatrical fireworks and uplifting music.

Led by the performers, each night festivalgoers can carry lanterns to the waterfront to watch the burn of the nightly sculpture accompanied by music.

The three wooden sculptures, Man, Sun and Bird, have been created by Melbourne-based artist Christian Patton and will be burned on a barge in Victoria Harbour with fireworks as the backdrop.
