Vivid Sydney 2013

Today was officially opened the fifth annual Vivid Sydney festival by lighting the sails of the Sydney Opera House to unveil a stunning visual feast of colour, movement and world-class lighting artistry, with amazing 3D-mapped light projections by Australian creative innovators, The Spinifex Group.

Vivid Sydney is an 18-day festival of light, music and ideas. It is the biggest festival of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere and will take place in Sydney from this Friday 24 May to 10 June, from 6pm for Lights On.

For the first time in Vivid Sydney’s five-year history, Vivid Light has extended to Darling Harbour and will transform the popular entertainment area into a spectacle of dancing water fountains, water screen projection performances and dazzling light and water shows, never seen before in Australia, masterminded by France’s legendary Aquatique Show International.
