Vivid Sydney – A Festival of Light, Music & Ideas
For the third year in a row Sydney held the Vivid Sydney festival, transforming the iconic landmarks into an art canvas. It makes me realise what such a beautiful city I live in. #sydneypride
Colourful light installations and projections, special music events and thought provoking public talks, bringing the city to life and this year drawing crowd numbers like every night was the new years eve.
So my tip for next year, head out on a week night and go during the first few nights of the event. Rug up to stay warm and plot out your route. Every single year I have never successfully completed the entire route because I get side tracked or either I’ve ran out of time (lights turn off at midnight).
Highlights for this year were all the installations that were interactive – getting your dance groove at Customs House’ “Move Your Building”, the DJ’s box and the illuminated drums and enlightening piano at Campbells Cove.
The Harbour Bridge was part of the event for the first time but I just thought it was a bit silly that it was illuminated only on one side of the bridge and it was the side facing towards the North! (For those not in Sydney, its the side facing out towards the ocean!)
Hopefully they’ll light up both sides of the bridge next year?
