VIVID is the world’s largest festival of light, music and ideas. Now it has completed its spans of ten years in the market. It shows the spectacular and admired outdoor lighting and projection displays on Sydney landmarks and at popular locations, plus a rich program of music and ideas events. The festival is based in Sydney’s CBD and is also more and more expanding out into surrounding suburbs of Sydney.
Destination NSW, the NSW Government's tourism and major events agency owns, manages and produces this event.
The previous year, Vivid Sydney 2017 had a record 2.33 million attendees and injected over $143 million into NSW’s visitor economy.
The colonial facade of Government House in Macquarie St will be a festivity of Australian art and cultural iconography which is designed by TAFE NSW students as a tribute to the country’s contemporary and modern designers and artists.
An installation made from 30 interconnected translucent cubes outside the Museum of Sydney, on Bridge and Phillip Sts in the CBD. Visitors can come in and discover a maze where shadowy silhouettes are seen through walls, making an isolating and disorientating effect.
Australian artist Jonathan Zawada has made 23 designs aroused by the environment to play on the Opera House’s sails.
TAFE NSW students have made, constructed and illuminated ious lighthouses with color, images and movement on the lawns of the Royal Botanic Gardens.
Taronga Zoo is organizing a mindblowing display of light sculptures, including favorites from last year and new designs, all inspired by the theme of conservation and wonders of wildlife. There are three sessions a night, with entry prices ying between $17.95-$26-95, with children under four free.
The Garden of Sweeties: A playful garden of sweets, lollipops and striped candy canes to attract children and the young at heart to First Fleet Park in The Rocks.
Chatswood’s The Concourse performing arts center will be the canvas for large-scale projections of NASA imagery. Visitors will actually get the feeling of traveling past the planets, floating through the rings of Saturn and perhaps even find themselves at the center of a Big Bang.
Projections onto the museum's roof, featuring BBC Earth and Sir David Attenborough’s Blue Planet II, will take visitors to a charming world beneath the waves.
NSW Police are making it convenient for the visitors as they are planning to make use of public transport. Road closures and special event clearways will be there to allow crowd flow and police are requesting everyone to leave their car at home and catch trains, buses, light rail or ferries instead to make it convenient for the public.
Thus, to conclude this is a great event which is coming in Sydney and one actually must not miss it.
