About Austin’s Birthday Bash

Started by the Downtown Austin Alliance Foundation, Austin’s Birthday Bash is a community celebration to highlight the founding of Austin. Since 2018, the event has commemorated the anniversary of when the first lots of land were auctioned under the Auction Oaks in what is today Republic Square.

About the Passion Flower

The Passion Flower is a combination of kinetic, visual, and auditory elements brought together in the form of an art car. Wrapped in blooming layers of dichroic film, Passion Flower reflects the beauty of Austin during the day — but once dusk settles in, the car comes to life as colorful LEDs match the ever-changing motion of the crowd and the vibrant energy of the music. Both the lighting and sound of Passion Flower are generated in real time by the artist-crafted and AI-powered music platform, Aimi, which produces endless, immersive experiences of electronic music that never repeat and constantly evolve.
