The Light Fest is a celebration that brings over 5 thousand people consisting of families, friends, and foodies together from around the world, and pairs them with live music, dancing, and an eruption of Sky Lanterns. Yes that's right Sky Lanterns! At the perfect moment, everyone ignites their personalized sky lanterns with Tiki torches and lets them take flight. It creates a surreal ambiance, where time slows down as your single flame rises with thousands of others. 

This is a Unique opportunity for Sonicbids artists to create the soundtrack and rock out at the family-friendly The Lights Festival
