Vivid Sydney kicked off last week and already is bigger and better than 2013. The city is alive with colour, light, creativity, inspiration, entertainment and ideas. The festival goes until June 9.
Vivid Sydney is a unique annual event that transforms the city heart into a spectacular grand scale canvas. The amazing ‘light art’ sculptures, installations and projections (like the illuminations on the Sydney Opera House sails are free for all to enjoy and set the tone for the performances and intellectual exchanges.
The music on offer is extremely diverse, much of it cutting edge and crossing a multitude of genres – there’s Indie, Pop, Rock, Hip Hop, Disco, Electronica, House, Classical and Experimental with local and international artists appearing at a number of venues including the Opera House, the Seymour Centre, The Argyle, The Spice Cellar and The Basement.
Under the category of Ideas there’s imagination, innovation and creativity across industry sectors that include Design, Animation, Advertising, Fashion, Film, Digital Media, Business, Science, Architecture, Games, Music, Publishing, Performing Arts, Radio and Television.
