Key Sydney landmarks including the Sydney Opera House, The Rocks, Circular Quay and the CBD will be transformed into a living canvass of light and sound when Vivid Sydney hits town later this year.

the influence of alcohol during the Vivid Sydney festival
The event will feature a festival curated by Smart Light Sydney at Sydney Opera House showcasing dynamic light art sculptures, with a free light walk staged from Observatory Hill, around the Rocks and Circular Quay.
Smart Light Sydney was conceived by festival director Mary-Anne Kyriakou. It is set to excite audiences with dozens of atmospheric light creations with minimal energy consumption, reduce light wastage and revitalise urban spaces.
Created by Events NSW, Vivid Sydney will be the biggest international music and light festival in the Southern Hemisphere.
It will run from May 26 until June 14 and is one of five anchor events in the first ever NSW Master Events Calendar.
