Join the Countdown to Cairns Eclipse 2012
Solar Fx Gathering has been staged by the Cairns Community on this weekend since 2006, to celebrate the birthday party of one of our closest friends, and to raise awareness and interest in the events that will be celebrating the Total Solar Eclipse taking place in our region in November 2012.
We have been given the opportunity to utilise the Kuranda Amphitheatre Understage area for this year’s Solar FX Gathering – starting at 3PM, and continuing through to 11:30PM… We will be presenting a swather of local music – kicking off with live bands & acoustic soloists in the afternoon… After the sun sets you can expect a selection of best electronic dub, reggae and downbeat mixed up by some of our regions premier djs. To compliment the lush tropical soundscapes, Solar FX will be featuring exhibits from a number of local and interstate painters & digital artists, visual projections from local vj’s, decor & installations artists, and amazing acrobatic & fire performances…
We are also proud to present a book launch and signing for local author Clive Walters!
The Amphitheatre Understage has a licensed bar available from 6pm, and a wide selection of hot food will also be available for the duration of the event. There will also be a selection of market stalls selling local clothing, crafts and trinkets…
Entry will be $20 ($15 for Amphitheatre Members) – One complimentary drink included with entry!
For all enquiries please contact us here, or send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
