The Gold Coast Cultural Precinct will transform this winter into a playground of creativity when GLOW returns in 2017.
Wear white and shine bright under the UV lights and immerse yourself in the magical art and cultural experience that is GLOW.
The annual family-friendly event will feature a breathtaking laser water show, live music with headline act ‘Fairchild’, illuminated art installations, a silent disco, virtual reality experiences and glow-in-the-dark yoga and tai-chi. In addition, emerging young local artists will have their work on display.
Don’t forget that you can catch the free water shuttle from Cavill Avenue to Evandale.
