Start Beaming, LA’s Immersive HAPPY PLACE Exhibition Is Coming To A Sydney Rooftop Next Month

It’s been dubbed the world’s most Instagrammable exhibition—selling out stints in Los Angeles, Chicago, Toronto, Boston, Las Vegas and Philadelphia—and it’s set to land in Sydney next month.

Called HAPPY PLACE, it’s made up of a maze of rooms, each featuring larger than life, whimsical and immersive installations, designed to help you “find your happy place”. Inside,  you’ll travel through the world’s largest confetti dome, a giant rainbow complete with a jump-ready “Pot of Happiness” (an enormous ball pit), there’s a bright yellow room with a yellow tub and thousands of rubber duckies and a “Super Bloom” room with 40,000 hanging handmade golden flowers.

You’ll also want to hang in the gravity-defying upside-down room and, last but not least, the “Cookie Room”, scented with the fragrance of freshly baked chocolate chip cookies. If all that doesn’t put a grin on your face, we’re not sure what will.

HAPPY PLACE founder and veteran American event producer Jared Paul said he created the travelling exhibition because, “we could all use a lot more happiness”, and so he designed a literal oasis of smile-rich moments for everyone to dive on into.

The Sydney edition will also include some Aussie-inspired installations, as well as being hosted on a rooftop (because rooftops are generally always happy places, duh).

There’ll also be a HAPPY PLACE lemonade stand, with proceeds being donated to the Australian Red Cross; there’ll be a merch stand and extra happy, Instagrammable treats to fuel your happy place quest too.

Tickets are on sale right bloody now, so what are you waiting for. Head over here
