Your Guide To Kaleidoscope Festival 2017

Following the success of last years’ show, Kaledoscope Festival is returning to the City of Joondalup this weekend, and it’s said to be pretty epic.

The festival of world-class light and illumination will be a vibrant feast for all the senses. See the City of Joondalup transform with art installations, illuminations, music and of course food!!

For those of you who weren’t lucky enough to attend the festival last year, here’s what you can expect this year.

Cast – by COMBS (WA)

This projection piece is one of the festival’s biggest, and it promises to be a visual feast! New media visual artist Combs explores form, blurring the lines between the organic and the geometric. Once you’ve seen it, you’ll never look a the City of Joondalup’s Admin Building the same again.

The Stringy Thingy – by Kingsley Matheson (WA)

If you were given a couple hundred metres of florescent string line and some UV lights what would you create? Kingsley Matheson has taken the art of string to a whole new level with his installation that has to be seen to be believed.

Face Off – by David Jones (Victoria)

See a giant stylized rendition of your face projected onto the Lotteries House, one laugh = one lollipop.

All You Need Is Love – by Carla O’Brien (Victoria)

Melbourne artist Carla O’Brien is challenging our ‘selfie’ game by bringing us a fun and interactive walk-through installation featuring over 20 neon objects. Sing along to an all time classic Beatles hit “All You Need Is Love” and get snapping!!

Will-o-the-Wisps – by Mandylights (NSW)

See thousands of individually controlled light ‘wisps’ that make up Will-o-Wisps. This installation is one of the firsts’ on Kaleidoscope’s ‘Walk of Wonder’, and when you see it, you’ll understand why.

Night Voices

The last thing you’d expect to stumble on whilst taking your leisurely night walk through the bush pathways is 30 of the most amazing singers in an illuminated straight line. Let the sounds of these singers guide you through your evening, and as they sing for your pleasure and enjoyment.


Of course no festival is complete without some good grub. There’s said to be around 40 food trucks for you to stuff your face on, including The Fish Boss, The Pasta Truck, Jumplings, Flying Falafel, Bantastic Mi, The Sweet Box Cart and Coco Lycious to name a few. Just make sure you leave room (and an Insta) for the NEON fairy floss… #KSCOPE
