Vivid Sydney, one of the most spectacular light shows in the world, is set to impress again when it returns to Sydney for 23 nights from Friday 26 May to Saturday 17 June 2017.
Vivid Sydney is the world’s largest festival of light, music and ideas, which annually transforms the harbour city into an outdoor art exhibition with its colourful creative canvas.
The event features large scale light installations and projections (Vivid Light); music performances and collaborations (Vivid Music including Vivid LIVE at the Sydney Opera House); and creative ideas, discussion and debate (Vivid Ideas), all celebrating Sydney as the creative hub of the Asia-Pacific.
Last year, visitors flocked to the cathedral of lights in the Botanic Gardens and took thousands of shots of the Sydney Opera House lit with ‘Songlines’. They heard talks from game-changers Spike Jonze, Beau Willimon and Margaret Zhang. Plus, they let people sleepover at the Opera House.
