Brisbane Festival commissioned Skyshows to deliver Nieergoo: Spirit of the Whale. A 65,000 yr old story of the Moreton Bay islands, created by Louise Bezzina, directed by Traditional Owner Shannon Ruska and soundtrack by Guy Webster.

400 Drones took to the Brisbane River in a festival first, to dazzle the Brisbane community, and tell this story through creative sky art. Skyshows delivered two shows on the opening night straight after the “Riverfire” fireworks and then three shows the following night as part of the opening week to Brisbane Festival.
