Vivid Sydney – The Festival of Light
Many people dream to visit the beautiful and distant Australia and Vivid Sydney is just one more reason to want this dream to come true.
Vivid Sydney is a spectacular festival of light, which transforms the city during the night. It was launched in 2009 and since then it gathers thousands of people every winter in the Southern hemisphere. This year the event takes place from the 24th of May till the 10th of June. So there is still chance to witness this magnificent dance of colours. Many of the famous Sydney landmarks are turned into canvas and thanks to the state-of-the-art lights, they become masterpieces. As if the light installations are not enough, the show is accompanied by the performances of famous musicians and discussions of bright and creative thinkers.
The headliner of the event is Vivid Light Walk – a magical experience of colour and design, which is open to visitors every night from 6pm till midnight. Regardless of age, anyone can enjoy the 3D mapping and graphics along the shores of Sydney Harbour: the Sydney Opera House, The Rocks, Walsh Bay, Circular Quay, Fort Denison and Darling Harbour.
Sometimes photographs say more than words, so here is why Vivid Sydney is worth visiting:
