GLOW Fest is a new circus arts and lifestyle event that launched in March 2021, in the relaxed surf town of Crescent Head on the mid-north coast of NSW. It offered 117 circus and flow arts workshops, showcase performances, fire spinning circles, children’s activities and entertainment, and art installations, performances and displays.


Bringing together the best parts of a circus arts gatherings with Burning Man culture and creativity, this was truly a multi-faceted arts event. Family-friendly and community-driven, it also includes a strong focus on sustainability, participation, inclusion and connection.

The daytime program featured workshops, discussions and performances from some of the top flow and circus artists across the Tasman. Nightly showcases delivered mind-blowing skills and feats of amazement, uniquely programmed and presented just for GLOW Fest. A custom art bus served as the stunning centrepiece for arts, entertainment and aerial performance through the event.
