Words by Sidonie Bird de la Coeur

With light projections, huge live acts, local art, roving performances, food, wine and so much more, the inaugural Hume Winter Lights Festival is set to light up Broadmeadows.

The Hume Winter Lights Festival is a bold and immersive experience that’s set to unite music and art lovers, that takes place over an activity filled evening of performance, dining and light projection.

Large scale artworks by Hume artists will make up the background for this illuminating evening, where you can immerse yourself in an African Drumming Workshop, sip on mulled wine or sit back and watch the musical acts. Featuring a Chinese LED Dragon, roving robots, fire performances and mime artists, the Hume Winter Lights Festival is not one to be missed.
