Your Guide to Festival Park

As always, the Rimfire Energy Bamboo Bandstand will host free music every night the park is open and free dance performances on Saturday and Sunday evening. So, while you eat and drink and hang out with friends, you can kick back to some great local tunes and moves. Late-night music lovers can also enjoy a free show on Thursday 13 August when Tutup Mulut perform their electro acoustic Indonesian space music in Malam (Night).

Those up for the challenge of saving a cartoon hero from certain doom can get involved in Avoidable Perils. This social experiment beamed to screens in Festival Park asks you to SMS to help determine the fate of a series of characters. The more people who get involved, the more likely the onscreen heroes are to be saved – so rally that contact list!

Take a wander through the Park and discover the free photography exhibition Still Life in Lockdown, a series of images taken in Darwin and Lismore (NSW) during the stay at home restrictions.

Festival Park opens 5pm tomorrow night with the free Housewarming event and is open every night until Sun 16 Aug (closed Monday 10 August). Entry is free (limited capacity).
