In light of the COVID-19 restrictions currently in place for South Australia, all Illuminate Adelaide events (free and ticketed) will be paused while we await further advice from SA Health.

Our team is still working hard to process refunds for the ticket buyers who have been affected by event cancellations, please check your emails and spam folders for our communications. We appreciate your patience while our team navigates this ever-changing situation.

We hope to be able to restart as soon as restrictions are lifted and will advise members of the public accordingly.

Stay home, stay safe.

Sky Castle takes you somewhere inside the rainbow, as the heart of Rundle Mall is transformed into an interactive dreamscape of colour and light by Melbourne studio ENESS.

Watch its colours shift and evolve as you wander through each inflatable archway, set to a score of curiosity-stoking xylophone melodies that evolves and unfurls with the changing colours.

After a year in which venturing into public spaces has been fraught with newfound uncertainty, Sky Castle gently coaxes us back to once again share a space and an experience together, and let all those cares briefly float away.
