The lead music act for Luminous is Dom Turner, performing with his new band The Rural Blues Project. Dom is a multi-award-winning Australian blues artist and guitarist, and lead vocalist and founding member of the iconic Australian blues group Backsliders.

“We’re thrilled to announce also that international jazz legend Vince Jones and his band will play at the Bay Pavilions Yuin Theatre the night before Luminous, said Leanne Joyce, Festival Chair.

“After two years of COVID-19 lockdowns and uncertainty, we are delighted to present such major artists. Over the coming weeks we’ll be launching a packed Festival Program featuring major artists, music and cabaret, exhibitions, workshops and open studios to celebrate the vibrant art scene of Eurobodalla,” Leanne said.

General entry tickets for Luminous: Art After Dark are $20 per adult. Children under 16 are free.

Limited tickets are also available for the ultimate festival experience in the Luminous Lounge. The experience costs $150 and includes premium viewing of the laser show and main stage from an exclusive marquee, a private bar, gourmet catering celebrating seasonal South Coast produce and short, engaging performing arts pieces.

“We encourage people to get their Luminous tickets early and tell friends and family too.”
