Light, music and ideas come to Sydney Harbour

The 5th annual Vivid Sydney has officially opened with Sydney’s iconic Opera House illuminated in a stunning 3D-mapped visual feast of colour, movement, and world-class lighting artistry by Australian creative innovators The Spinifex Group. The largest light, music and ideas festival in the Southern Hemisphere, Vivid Sydney features lighting installations around the harbour foreshore, live music performances at Sydney Opera House, and over 120 creative industry events.

This year Vivid Light has tripled the harbour foreshore area devoted to lighting installations, with one-third from international artists including from the USA, Germany, Italy, Greece, Malaysia, Korea, Poland, Brazil and New Zealand.

In a world first, Sydney’s famous Harbour Bridge will come alive with an interactive programmable lighting installation on the bridge’s western face, controlled by the public from an interactive touch screen, through a collaboration with Intel and with Sydney’s 32 Hundred Lighting. And in another world first, Vivid Sydney also now extends to the popular Darling Harbour, with spectacular water fountains, water screen projection performances and dazzling light and water shows, by France’s legendary Aquatique Show International.

Vivid Sydney runs until 10th June 2013 and is expected to attract more than 550,000 people.

  1. The Vivid event was exceptional this year and the bar was raised yet again. It is truly becoming one of the premier events in the Sydney calendar.
