GLOW Fest Organisers
GLOW Fest Director
Producer/performer Sophie deLightful is the creator of GLOW Fest. Born in Sydney and with her home base now in Melbourne, she continues to build her profile as a committed, hardworking and innovative producer in the Australian cabaret and community circus space. During Victoria's extended lockdown of 2020, Sophie created the Covid-safe, contactless mobile circus Curbside Carnies, and since restrictions were lifted in November, has been touring this with council support throughout Victoria.
She brings to the GLOW Fest organisational team almost a decade of production experience, including boutique alcohol-tasting cabarets, a 5-week East Coast tour with international troupe the Wandering Circus, Australia's only fire cabaret Babes Ablaze and countless other cabaret productions that have toured Fringe and music festivals across Australia. She is now one of Melbourne's most sought-after curators for community circus experiences and is the Artistic Director for the sold-out Circus of Light national dance party series.
