Lighting Design with Peter Rubie

Peter’s designs are regularly seen on concert stages all around Australia and he has designed the lighting for many notable international artists including; Amanda Palmer, Ben Folds, The Proclaimers, TV on the Radio, Anna Calvi, Idina Menzel, Lea Salonga and Gary Clark Jr.  He has also had the pleasure of lighting some home-grown artists such as; Tina Arena, Kate Miller-Heidke, Megan Washington, Tommy Emmanuel, Eskimo Joe and Meow Meow.
