What is East End Echoes?
East End Echoes is a night-time trail of light featuring installations and projections on building facades in and around Rundle Street as part of Illuminate Adelaide’s free City Light’s program.
The East End is one of Adelaide’s most popular and historic strips, home to a bustling mix of flavours, fashion and festivity. Pop on your headphones and dive into this colourful history with this self-guided walking circuit of lighting, projections and soundscapes.
Featuring work by animators, storytellers and sound artists in the 'illuminart' network, the digital circuit highlights the street's themes and stories to offer you an exciting parallel experience augmenting the streetscape.
Larger crowds are anticipated to attend East End Echoes on Friday and Saturday evenings across the Illuminate Adelaide festival period. The purpose of the road closures is to provide viewing space for crowds on road at the anticipated peak times.
Illuminate Adelaide is a new major annual winter event for Adelaide, taking over the city streets, laneways and buildings from 16 July - 01 August 2021, celebrating innovation, music, art, technology and light.
