THE second Kaleidoscope Festival has been hailed “a resounding success” with more than 88,000 people visiting the Joondalup city centre over the four nights.

That compares to last year’s award-winning inaugural festival, which attracted about 55,000 people.

Mayor Albert Jacob congratulated “everyone involved in planning and delivering” the event that “clearly captured the imagination of people from around the Perth metropolitan area and beyond”.

He said this year’s program of “spectacular light installations, illuminations, projections and performances” was “taken to the next level under esteemed creative director Drew Anthony featuring 64 dynamic artists from WA and interstate”.

“Bringing significant events such as Kaleidoscope Festival to the Joondalup city centre stimulates the local business economy and provides entertainment and a vibrant night life for local residents and visitors,” he said.

“Complementing the existing program of established City events held each summer, the City created Kaleidoscope to enhance vibrancy in the city centre, stimulate local economic activity and promote and showcase Joondalup as the entertainment capital of the northern corridor of Perth.

“Kaleidoscope has delivered on those aspirations and the council will now take on board community feedback and lessons learned when planning how to manage this popular event next year.”
