Mandylights has worked extensively on Floriade – the southern hemisphere’s largest floral show – and producers from the ACT State Government since 2010 to light the ever-growing Floriade NightFest event. Each year, the Floriade festival features five exciting nights of illuminations and lighting shows that sees the acres of festival lit up in new and exciting ways. Working with an annual theme, Mandylights typically designs, installs and operates up to a thousand lighting fixtures in all types of weather, including an annual showcase installation which features a new exciting light artwork developed specifically for the event. In the near decade of work on the event, Mandylights has designed and built a unique system for rigging and powering the site, and pushed the event’s green credentials by increasing the scope of lighting each year while dramatically reducing energy consumption through the consistent revisions of technology.
