Transforming winter with art, light, and music: Illuminate Adelaide 2024

Set for its fourth year as a favourite on South Australia’s major events calendar, Illuminate Adelaide will once again transform winter with an all-new curated program of art, light, music and technology to attract visitors to the CBD in the traditionally quieter month of July.

Celebrating the intersection between art, light, music and technology Illuminate Adelaide will transform the city’s existing venues, spaces and hidden gems to cast them in a whole new light.

Illuminate is evolving this season by presenting all new events in key venues across the city such as Adelaide Botanic Garden, Adelaide Zoo and featuring an all-new free City Lights program illuminating the CBD with installations, projections and surprises from artists all over the world.

For the first time the major elements in the program will launch together allowing visitors to experience all the highly anticipated events on each of the three weekends.

Dine by firelight

This special pop-up dining experience was curated and created by lauded Restaurant Botanic executive chef Justin James.

For three weeks only, thousands of handcrafted giant firepots, captivating kinetic sculptures, live music and candlelit arched pathways will bring warmth and a mesmerizing firelight transformation to the Adelaide Botanic Garden in this specially commissioned work. Filled with flaming delights and elemental forces, this premiere twilight event promises a feast for the senses. Relish the chance to blaze your own trail, and marvel at the transformation of the natural environment.
