Fed Square transformed in a colourful spectacle of fluorescent lights and crystal whites for New Year’s Eve 2015.
Filled with African beats, samba dance, circus acts and neon lights, Fed Square’s free New Year’s Eve celebration was a party to remember. The Square illuminated in a kaleidoscope of colour and movement, reflecting the rich cultural diversity of Melbourne. Party-goers wore their brights and whites and shone under a canopy of ultraviolet lights installed exclusively for the celebration.
The big beats of Lamine Sonko and The African Intelligence provided the soundtrack to an easy class of dance steps that, on the stroke of midnight, came together in an en-masse dance to their popular track, Light and Shine.
The entertainment lineup, curated by Multicultural Arts Victoria, also included Sounds of Polynesia, Marawa the Amazing, Ethiopian Circus Trio, Neda and the Neon Rhythm Myth Masters, Wassawumba and Congo Tardis #1.
The celebrations at Fed Square were proudly supported by Deakin University, who are celebrating the culmination of their 40th anniversary.
