Docklands' winter forecast is looking very warm and toasty, as the annual Firelight Festival returns to the precinct from Friday, June 28 till Sunday, June 30. The festival's third outing promises to totally eclipse the others, featuring a sprawling program of events and activities, and some particularly lavish celebrations.

Victoria Harbour is set to be transformed into its biggest, brightest self, playing host to nightly fireworks displays, 40 roving performers, flame jets, fire cauldrons, water and light shows and striking installations.

You'll even catch two giant fire sculptures of a phoenix and a deer set ablaze on New Quay Promenade and Victoria Esplanade, as well as giant bonfires along Harbour Esplanade. Local and international entertainers will also descend on the festival's three live performance spaces. Expect to see everything from Bollywood dancers to Mariachi bands.

The festival, which coincides with the winter solstice — the shortest and darkest day of the year — will have a hefty food lineup, too. Warming and smoky will be the order of the day with local favourites Limp Brisket, the Soup Factory and Frencheese all making an appearance.

Firelight Festival will run from 5–10pm with nightly fireworks expected to start at 8.45pm.
