Vivid Sydney Opera House
From 6pm every evening. Stretching from the Opera House to the end of Walsh Bay with 60 exhibits including the Opera House and Harbour Bridge. Launching a greatly expanded Vivid Sydney this year, including lighting the Sydney Harbour Bridge and
transforming Darling Harbour into a spectacular water theatre, Deputy Premier Andrew Stoner said the festival,
which is owned and managed by Destination NSW, the State’s major events and tourism agency, reinforced
Sydney’s position as Australia’s global city and the creative hub of the Asia-Pacific.
“After a few short years Vivid Sydney is now the Southern Hemisphere’s largest festival of light, music and ideas,
and a globally renowned celebration of creativity and innovation,” Mr Stoner said.
“2013 will be the biggest and boldest Vivid Sydney yet, showcasing the city like it’s never been seen before to
visitors not only from Sydney and NSW, but interstate and overseas, and promoting the world-class creative
industries of NSW.
Vivid Light Shines Bigger and Brighter
“The Vivid Light footprint has tripled in size and for the first time Sydney’s famous Harbour Bridge will come alive
with a spectacular installation created through a collaboration between Vivid partner Intel Australia and Sydney’s
32 Hundred Lighting, with support from North Sydney Council, in a world-first interactive programmable lighting
installation on the bridge’s western face, controlled by the public from a touch screen located on the Luna Park
