A 1,000 square metre inflatable “Luminarium” will fill Dundee City Square at part of this year’s Summer Streets Festival.
The festival, which is returning for its second year, will take place on July 20 and 21 and promised a vibrant kaleidoscope of entertainment for people of all ages.
At the heart of this year’s event is the spectacular luminarium designed by Architects of Air.
The giant inflatable artwork allows visitors to wander through tunnels and domes experiencing a kaleidoscope of colour, light and sound.
Inspired by by Islamic and Gothic architecture, they are intended to provide a sensory experience for people of all ages.
Tickets for the luminarium will cost £3 and can either be booked in advance or paid for on the day. Children under five will get in for free.
Councillor Alan Ross, convener of Dundee City Council’s city development committee said he expects the festival to bring visitors to Dundee from far and wide.
He said: “After the success of the first event last year I am sure that the fantastic, family-friendly programme on offer this time around will appeal to all ages and attract visitors to Dundee city centre from near and far.
“At the height of summer Dundee city centre will be the place to be with loads to watch, see and listen to.”
Other events taking place this year include a maze in Albert Square featuring a host of Dundee landmarks, street performers and a series of events at The McManus.
Visitors will also be able to play giant-sized versions of games such as Connect 4 and Jenga on Reform Street.
The Overgate Centre, headline sponsors of the Summer Streets Festival, will also stage a series of events including chemistry demonstrations, on its ground floor.
Last year’s Summer Streets Festival saw thousands of people descend on Dundee over its two days.
As it coincided with the Open at Carnoustie, it featured a number of golf-themed attractions.
