Alice Springs Desert Park

Desert Park is home to the spectacular lighting of the MacDonnell Ranges, several large-scale immersive and interactive light installations, the animated artworks of Grounded, an amazing line-up of music, live talks, food demonstrations, workshops and children’s activities, plus an open-air food and beverage area. Grab a bite to eat while soaking up the atmosphere under the stars, only a short walk from the main festival site.

The Lighting of the MacDonnell Ranges will commence each night after dark, following a nightly performance held on the Ranges Stage.

Todd Mall

The festival ambience extends to Todd Mall, complete with a kaleidoscope of lights painting the mall in the evening.
