Mark your diaries and plan to spend Queens Birthday Weekend in Queenstown where you can immerse yourself in music performed by New Zealand’s leading artists, the exciting next generation of musicians who will one day take their place, and Central Otago’s outstanding community talent.

LUMA Southern Light Project runs concurrently – a sensory experience bringing together illuminated art, light sculpture, performance and community on the shores of Lake Wakatipu.
