24 – 29 January @ Diving Pool, HBF Stadium ·
Presented by Newtoy ·

Dive in and immerse in an otherworldly sound experience. The water surface becomes a threshold between different musics and entirely different listening experiences. Underwater the sound is clear and immediate and due to the fact that sound travels 4.5 times faster in water, it is perceived through your bones!

Underwater, aqueous performances await in the depths of sound and imagination. This is an experience like no other which should not be missed on its Western Australia premiere!!

Swimsuit a must (Arrive on time to change)
Goggles recommended

Wet Sounds won the Best Interactive Event Award at Adelaide Fringe 2018. It has toured the UK several times and installed at pools worldwide.
