AS THE WINTER DRAWS IN AND THE NIGHTS GET LONGER, THOUGHTS TURN TO MULLED WINE, GOOD FOOD, CATCHING UP WITH YOUR BUDDIES AND GOING ON THE HUNT FOR SOME NEW STORIES.

This week brings the next installment of LUMA’s annual takeover of Queenstown Gardens. For those of you who know what to expect you’ll be pleased to hear that everything’s changed again and nothing stays the same except the promise of a few wtf moments thrown into the mix.

There’s live music, dancers, food trucks, DJs, projections, sculptures, lasers, performers, world class production, cutting edge programming, soundscapes, pixies, fairies, nighscapes, aliens and movies.

We’ve got kiwi hospitality, cosy nooks, mulled wine, barbeques and beats. Coffee, donuts, ramen, dumplings and fizzy pop. Local brews, famous pizza toppings, cocktails, hot chips and lamb skewers. Burgers, bangers and wholesome goodness for everyone from vegans to vampires.

The LUMA Lounge is back breathing new life into the pines with a set list including some of New Zealand’s finest.

The Rose Garden morphs into a laser show with live performance and two separate zones for you to kick back and enjoy the spectacle.

...And then there’s the artwork. Some of it digital, some of it beautifully analogue. All made specially for the gardens by some of the best light artists anywhere. It really is a feast for all the senses.

Bring your dancefloor crew, your new hot date or your mum. Wrap up warm, grab a keep cup, take the LUMAbus, stock up on some good vibes and make LUMA the perfect start to your Queenstown Winter.

We’ll be there all week fluffing the pillows and making sure everything’s bright as a button for you all from Thursday night. See you there.

Cheers, Duncan and the LUMA Crew
