From 6pm to midnight each night, mesmerising light installations and projections illuminate the Sydney Opera House, Circular Quay, The Rocks, Walsh Bay, Martin Place, Darling Harbour and other parts of Sydney. Many of the works entertain by bringing out your own sense of play and wonder; the majority are just simply beautiful, enhancing the city in a way simply not seen in daylight.
With more than 60 installations during Vivid Sydney 2015, night-time is turned into play-time for kids of all ages. Watch out for exciting new interactive installations and projections, multi-player experiences and large-scale light art in amazing locations across the city.
Once again, the sails of the Sydney Opera House are transformed by a sequence of stunning video-mapped projections. From here, a series of interactive and immersive light art sculptures and installations paves the way to the renowned Vivid Light Walk. Some have a message, some are pure fun, many are interactive and they’re all free.
As in previous years, Darling Harbour is the setting for one of the most thrilling spectacles of Vivid 2015. In an Australian-first presented by Oracle–Liquid, the Vivid Laser-Fountain Water Theatre combines computer-controlled fountain jets and spirals, rainbow lasers and dancing flames, choreographed together in a glorious symphony of light and music to a soundtrack devised by Sydney’s electric music gurus, The Presets.
The many cruise vessels and ferries that travel around the harbour will be decorated with brilliant lights that change colour as they enter the different Vivid precincts. To ensure you have an extra-dazzling Vivid experience in 2015, why not book a spot onboard and enjoy the spectacle of the nightly light shows from the comfort of a harbour ferry or cruise vessel.
