Kaleidoscope is back to light up 2018

Following a spectacular inaugural year in 2016 attracting over 50,000 people, Kaleidoscope Festival 2017 had an overwhelming response with nearly 90,000 people attending WA’s world-class light and illumination festival. Returning for its third year, Kaleidoscope is once again set to transform City of Joondalup into an extraordinary wonderland of electrifying illumination and art.

True to its namesake, Kaleidoscope Festival 2018 will be a vibrant visual feast for all the senses. Combining exceptional illumination, art, installations, music and food, the program for this year is set to be huge! The festival is free, family friendly and accessible for everyone to enjoy.

Over four evenings, Joondalup’s City Centre will become an interactive living, breathing entertainment hub – a true ‘City of the Future’. Music and food will commence at 5pm with lights on from 7.30pm to 10.30pm and this year’s event food offering will be even bigger than last, accommodating all taste buds and dietary requirements.

Joondalup Mayor Albert Jacob said Kaleidoscope has been a resounding success for the City of Joondalup over the past two years.

“More than 140,000 people have visited the Joondalup City Centre from around the metropolitan area and beyond to enjoy a unique event that delivers spectacular and interactive art installations, illuminations, projections and live performances. Kaleidoscope is an important part of the City’s annual arts calendar and plays a role in driving positive economic outcomes for the local business economy, creating vibrancy in the City Centre and providing outstanding entertainment for residents and visitors alike. I look forward to seeing the variety of fun attractions Kaleidoscope 2018 will deliver for the wider community as one of the biggest free, family-friendly events in WA.”
