Vivid Sydney is a festival of light, music and ideas. After dark locations around the harbour foreshore from Circular Quay to Darling Harbour and across in North Sydney will be transformed by colourful light projections and installations. In addition to lighting the western side of the Sydney Harbour Bridge, and extending the light installations into Darling Harbour, this year also welcomes a new canvas, the Australian National Maritime Museum with its roof featuring light projections of Indian inspired patterns, in conjunction with their current exhibition East of India—Forgotten Trade with Australia.
Other components of the festival include a comprehensive music and ideas program with performances from Bobby Womac, Empire of the Sun and Australian singer songwriter CW Stoneking.
