Lost Dogs' Disco will be hosted by Latrobe City Council with funding from the Victorian government's COVIDSafe Outdoor Activation Fund, the Lost Dogs' Disco will deliver an immersive experience throughout the outdoor area. A full program of fun will be on offer alongside the installation, with late night sessions including live music, a bar and DJs across the ten-day festival.
Alongside our furry friends, don't miss our late night sessions including live music, bar and DJs, PLUS special activities for kids and families across the ten days
Brighten up the cold winter
Special activities for kids and families will be on offer to coincide with the winter school holidays, including disco dance parties, art sessions and even dog fortune telling hosted by Latrobe Libraries.
Mayor of Latrobe City Cr Kellie O'Callaghan invited the community to be part of the fun. "The Lost Dogs' Disco is unlike anything we've ever seen before in Latrobe City, bringing art and entertainment to our community to brighten up the cold Gippsland winter days and nights. This is a family and dog-friendly event, with a range of free activities for everyone to enjoy across the ten-day festival," said the Mayor.
The Lost Dogs' Disco is a temporary sculpture that celebrates the place of dogs in our lives. Visitors journey through an immersive installation of 16 dogs, some up to 5.5m tall: all in various states of repose - curled-up, standing, even touching noses.
As visitors journey through the happy pack, the dogs' coats light up and they greet passers-by with happy grunts to celebrate each new person's arrival; for the Lost Dog's Disco is a hallowed place for dogs and every newcomer to the disco is greeted as a fellow disco dog. The four distinct characters are inspired by three dog breeds, poodles, bull terriers and dachshunds.
The music of the Lost Dogs Disco is an experience in and of itself. With a custom sound design by ENESS, the electronic music captures the pathos and beauty of a dog's life and includes a chorus of barks, growls, howls and all kinds of doggie hullabaloo.
