Vivid Sydney: A dazzling spectacle of creativity
Vivid Sydney is a spectacular cultural event that showcases Sydney as a mind-blowing canvas of creative expression. The dazzling play of lights, music and stunning projections that bring alive the sails of the Sydney Opera House do justice to the coming together of creative minds.
As summer fades into winter and nights draw in, the Vivid Sydney festival breathes new life into the city with a splash of colour and creativity. And, this is no weekend event… it is a festival of global magnitude and goes on for 18 days, brightening the dull winter months of May and June. Creative minds from all over the world swarm to Sydney to witness the transformation of the city into an ocean of creativity and ingenuity.
The pride of Vivid Sydney is the artistic take on interactive light sculptures and building projections that have wowed visitors every year, for six years now. The Sydney Opera House, Circular Quay, the Rocks and Walsh Bay are pivotal precincts of the festival that glow with the luminosity of the extravagant lights that are another face of modern art.
This year, Darling Harbour was widely acclaimed for the Vivid Aquatique, a cutting-edge fountain with illuminated water jets that sailed through a magical wall of light and artistically syncronised to music.
To heighten your dazzling Vivid experience, you could grab a spot on one of the many illuminated cruise vessels and ferries that traverse the harbour, changing colour as they enter the different Vivid precincts.
Sydney makes a name for itself as the creative hub of Australia, and probably even in the Asia-Pacific region, thanks to the grandiosity and innovativeness of Vivid Sydney!
