Get your glow sticks ready for our sixth annual Light Night festival! Explore an illuminated wonderland of creativity, lights, music, and dance around Leo Villareal’s Buckyball. Kishi Bashi and ensemble hit the main stage for a high-energy electronic pop set directed by the award-winning instrumentalist. Kishi Bashi is known for his unique looping and participatory shows with world class ensembles from symphonies to rock bands, like Of Montreal, Jupiter One, and Tall Tall Trees.
Catch a sound spectacle parade that’s a mashup of local marching bands, bicyclists, and a car horn choir directed by Austin-based sound artist Steve Parker, pop-up light art installations by the Hillberry Festival, fire dancers, glow artmaking, a black-light graffiti wall, and more. A cash bar and food trucks are available.
Kick off the night with a special Happy Hour presented by Artinfusion and Bike Rack Brewery at 8th St. Market from 6 to 7:30 p.m., and then enjoy a pre-show glow ride from Bike Rack to Crystal Bridges starting at 7:30 p.m. The best-decorated LED bike and costume will win tickets to Art Night Out. All Ages on Nov. 10.
