Sydney’s Vivid Festival brings the city to life (and into light) every year, and it promises to do the same starting May 24, 2013.
“Colouring the city with creativity and inspiration,” says the Vivid Sydney website.
Vivid Sydney highlights include mesmerising light installations that cover some of Sydney’s most well-known and largest buildings and monuments, local and international musicians, and talks and public forums from those that lead in creative thinking. The majority of the festival takes Sydneysiders outdoors and is said to attract around 500,000 people each year.
Events that should not be missed:
- The Lighting of the Sails – A highlight of Vivid Sydney each year is the lighting of the Sydney Opera House sails with colorful projected artwork. Each evening, from 6pm to midnight, the sails are lit, making it even more amazing an icon to photograph.
- Vivid Light Walk – Also occurring every night of the event is the Vivid Light Walk along the Sydney Harbour foreshore. Follow the light displays and interactive light art sculptures all the way from Sydney Opera House to Walsh Bay.
- Kraftwerk – German electronic musicians will be performing the best from 3 decades of work, along with a great audiovisual display, across 4 nights at the Sydney Opera House.
- VIVID Behind the Scenes tour of the Opera House - Go behind-the-scenes at VIVID LIVE, entering through the stage door and going backstage, into the theaters and the green room to the stars of VIVID LIVE.
