On Saturday 14th May the Lithgow Blast Furnace will once again become the canvas for lighting artists to recreate the glow of the once powerful industrial heart of the iron and steel industry in Australia.
With good food, entertainment and ‘hot zones’ Lithgow is set to turn up the temperature on local events.
The Energy Australia fireworks return and will feature a dazzling barrage of shooting stars high over Blast Furnace and Lake Pillans, culminating in a perfectly choreographed multi-coloured finale at 8pm.
Lithgow Mayor Maree Statham said “following the replacement of the Lake Pillans bridges, destroyed during the devastating bushfires of 2019, the Lake Pillans boardwalk will become a magical illuminated walking path offering views of 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. Their mix of mechanised rhythms, vintage synths, sweet soaring vocals, effected cello and post-rock guitars 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 in the ‘hot zones’.
Lithgow Blast Furnace will be the perfect backdrop for Carnivale Circus Troup to perform their specially created Fire Dance show.
