Time Out says
Head west for this one-day firecracker of a festival
A music and arts festival unlike any other in Sydney, Soft Centre whirrs, flashes and throbs through the cement-bound hallows of the Casula Powerhouse. This year the festival is curated by the hot shots who went on to lead Dark Mofo's insanely popular Dark Mass, so you know you are in good hands.
A one-day festival, Soft Centre crams an impressive amount of Vivid-esque light installations and world-class performance into a few hours of experience. Hopping off the train at Casula you're essentially plunged into a sensory overload of light, sound, performance and a sea of punters out for a good time.
Describing the show doesn't really nail the surprising experience Soft Centre is bound to provide. Put aside your Saturday and get immersed in the whirrs, flashes and throbs. Be warned, though: the website is probably not safe for anyone with flashing light-induced epilepsy or migraines.
