NSW: Sydney skyline dazzles for Vivid festival

Date: Sat 27 May 2017


As the sky darkened, Sydney lit up in a kaleidoscope of colours for the first night of Vivid.

The annual lights, music and ideas festival began at 6pm on Friday with the illumination of the Sydney Opera House, transfixing viewers with a futuristic light and music display featuring imaginary sea creatures lurking deep in the harbour and shimmering plant life.

Organisers are hoping for a crowd of 2.5 million over the 23 consecutive nights of the lights festival.

NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian said the state was ready to "welcome even more visitors" to enjoy the array of colour and creativity and give the region an economic boost.

"We're hoping to surpass last year's massive $110 million injection into our state's visitor economy and going on indications from hotels and major attraction bookings, we're on track," Ms Berejiklian said in a statement on Friday.
