Sydney’s Vivid Festival Returns May 23-June 9, 2014

Vivid Festival

An explosion of colour and light is set to greet visitors to Sydney this May as Vivid Sydney, the annual festival of light, music and idea returns to Sydney Harbour. The 18-day festival, now in its sixth year, sees the precinct around Circular Quay including the Sydney Harbour Bridge and Opera House light up with interactive art displays each night.

From May 23 to June 9, 2014, the events program also sees Customs House and the Museum of Contemporary Art feature projected art works and more than 50 new light installations will run along the foreshore between East Circular Quay to Campbell’s Cove and Walsh Bay.

The harbour will feature ferries and commercial vessels lit by coloured LED lights computer-controlled by satellite navigation, while the city skyline around Circular Quay – including Four Seasons Hotel Sydney – will be lit for the duration of the event.
