The fabulous Brisbane Festival is underway. The Spiegeltent is up and filled with incredible entertainment…pop, rock, hip hop, family entertainment, jazz, comedy and cabaret…every night from 7th until 28th September.
The cultural forecourt at Southbank is lit up in spectacular fashion each night with Santos City of Light…lights, laser and special effects by creative director Tony Assness.
I went with a friend last night and we walked through the forecourt on our way to find a seat by the river.
At 8.00pm the river lit up.
If you look closely into the curtain of water you will see 3 figures on long poles swaying in and out of the water.
The soundtrack that accompanies the light show is every bit as dramatic and a beautiful spring evening made the perfect backdrop.
We made our way to the Siegeltent to watch La Soiree, the cabaret show on every night at 9.00pm.
I can show you the inside of the tent,
but I can’t show you the performance, no photos were allowed. I can report that it was fabulous and you should all try to see it. Don’t buy all the tickets because I want to go back.
On the way to the car we spotted the Pop up Hotel. A competition organised by Map magazine is offering winners the chance to stay overnight in the luxury, and very cute, tent beside the river.
Don’t miss the Brisbane Festival. The light show is free every night…Sunday to Thursday at 7.00pm and 8.30pm, and Friday and Saturday nights at 7.00pm, 8.00pm and 9.00pm.
