How cool is this? A free all-night festival on the beach and pier in Santa Monica with over 20 multi-media artists and music from KCRW, Machine Project, Dub Lab and other to-be-announced artists? That's what's happening at Glow, a dusk-to-dawn (7 p.m. to 7 a.m.) event put on by the city of Santa Monica on July 19.

Of note, Machine Project will have an orchestra play from the buckets of the new ferris wheel as it goes around and around and Shih Chieh Huang (art installation seen in the photo) will be making a "Neptunian lair along and above the pedestrian and bicycle path beneath the Santa Monica Pier." More artists are listed on the event's homepage by scrolling over each photo box.

And if that's not enough, another all-night music fete, Hard Summer Music Festival, is taking place at the Shrine Auditorium until 4:00 a.m.
