Sydney Opera House – Vivid Sydney – Festival of Lights, Music and Ideas
The Third Annual Vivid Sydney Festival is on! This colorful celebration of light, music and ideas started last May 27 and will run until June 13, 2011. Various and major tourist landmarks here in Sydney were transformed into canvas and are illuminated by colorful lights. This outdoor festival is being staged at the Sydney Opera House, Circular Quay and The Rocks.
The main showcase of this year is the amazing ‘Lighting the Sails’ on the iconic Sydney Opera House created by French design team, SUPERBIEN. This design team produced a special 15 minute lighting performance to music, giving onlookers a taste of the 3D mapping designs being projected onto the sails over the 18 nights of the festival.
As part of this festival, Sydney Opera House will also host big performances that will include 2manyDJs (Belgium), Bat for Lashes (UK), Sonny Rollins (US), Yo Gabba Gabba (US) and Odd Future (US).
