The Lithgow Blast Furnace will become the canvas for lighting artists to recreate the glow of the once powerful blast furnace that was the heart of the iron and steel works in Australia 115 years ago.
Energy Australia have once again brought back the fireworks display that will feature a dazzling barrage of shooting stars high over Blast Furnace and Lake Pillans, culminating with a perfectly choreographed multi-coloured finale.
Lake Pillans will become a magical illuminated walking path with a light display that will take you across two bridges to see the Blast Furnace from across the lake.
This year’s musical feast will be a cinematic, post-electro, dream-rock experience from the band Sonori. With their mix of mechanised rhythms, vintage synths, sweet soaring vocals, effected cello and post-rock guitars which converge in a cerebral union of melody and beats.
Your taste buds will be dancing with the range of food on offer that you will be able to enjoy around the warmth of the fire drums.
The Blast Furnace will be the perfect backdrop for Carnivale Circus Troup to perform their specially created Fire Dance show for LithGlow 2022.
