The city lights up with colour and music for Vivid Sydney

We’ve reported on some pretty cool Vivid Sydney events before, but we’re super excited about this year’s exhibition of light and music. As its name implies, Vivid Sydney is an annual event that features many of the world’s most important creative industry forums, a ‘mesmerizing free public exhibition of lighting sculptures, a cutting edge contemporary music program and the spectacular illumination of the Sydney Opera House sails‘. It’s all kicking off this week and will end in June, so if you’re down under, definitely check this out.
