Every year, Sydney is transformed into a spectacular canvas of lights when the Vivid Sydney festival takes over the city after dark. Vivid Sydney is the biggest festival of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere. Vivid was named Best Tourism Event at the Australian Event Awards in 2014, and continues to draw thousands of visitors to Sydney from around Australia and from overseas.
Last year’s Vivid Sydney featured a wild mix of projection mapping and interactive displays. The vessels on Sydney Harbour were also decorated with special colored LED lights, extending the show to the water. This year, audiences can expect another incredible display and more!
