Melbourne’s Marvel Stadium is to transform its underground spaces as it hosts the debut of a pioneering new light show.

Firelight Labyrinth experience, which features more than 140,000 lights, cutting-edge technology and dynamic audio, is being brought to the venue by international creative lighting specialists, Mandylights. The show will be staged over three days at the end of June and during the city’s weeks-long Firelight Festival.

The stadium’s underground spaces will be generating significant revenue with adult tickets for the experience, which lasts up to an hour, costing $37.50. Visitors enter the show every 15 minutes.

Scott Fitzgerald, Marvel Stadium’s general manager, said: “Marvel Stadium is excited to be bringing Firelight Labyrinth to the stadium precinct. It’s just another family friendly event we are delivering with the aim to showcase activity at the stadium 365 days per year, alongside our newly renovated state-of-the-art Stadium Square.”

Firelight Festival returns to Melbourne

Firelight Labyrinth is presented by the City of Melbourne and supported by Event Partners China Airlines, Mandylights and Marvel Stadium.

The 56,000-capacity stadium, which opened in 2000, is owned and operated by the Australian Football League (AFL). It is the home to several AFL teams and hosts concerts and other events.

The City of Melbourne’s free Firelight Festival will once again illuminate New Quay Promenade, Victoria Promenade and Harbour Esplanade in the Docklands area where Marvel Stadium is located from June 28 to July 14.

It features fire performers, African drumming, live music and storytelling, as well as fire pits and drums, flame jets, fire sculptures and arches.
