White Night

24.02.2013

After a wonderful (and free!) final concert from the MSO last night…

MSO 1 MSO 2

…I decided to check out the sights and sounds of Melbourne’s very first White Night festival.

It took me 30 minutes to walk about 500 metres. I didn’t expect it to be quite so busy. Or so interesting.

White Night 2

Flinders St buildings

White Night 3

People watching projections on the stained glass in St Paul’s Cathedral

White Night 4

Lighting in St Paul’s Cathedral turned night into day

White Night 5

Flinders St Station steps become a stage, and the streets a mosh pit

White Night 6

Buildings were alive with spectacular light shows

I wanted to see more, but I would’ve spent all night squeezing through crowds in uncomfortable heat just to get a glimpse of these wonders. Hopefully next year festival organisers will spread the light shows across a few more streets so viewers aren’t crammed into a couple of city blocks.

Or maybe I’ll just head into the city at 3:00am, when the crowds are a little thinner.

    Awesome, the station looks vaguely like Luna Park 😉
