Lights, music, innovation… action. Sydney is set to transform into a playground of the unexpected.
After a tough 18 months for so many of us, Vivid Sydney ’21 promises to warm the soul of our city with light artists, music makers and brilliant thinkers… sparking our sense of wonder and inspiring us to come out to play as Sydney transforms before our eyes.
Here’s all you need to know about the dazzling array of Vivid delights on offer around Barangaroo and beyond.
Even more to explore and enjoy on the streets of Barangaroo
When Vivid Sydney lights up Barangaroo, it becomes an even bigger feast for your senses and even more of a ‘must-explore’ destination. Take in the artworks at Exchange Square and along Wulugul Walk, then discover why Barangaroo South is Sydney’s go-to dining destination, enjoying delicious, light-inspired fare from over 40 restaurants, bars and cafes and “cheeky tipple spots” – there’s something for everyone in this mouth-watering line-up.
Admired for its grandeur, the harp is one of the oldest musical instruments in the world. ChronoHarp – forged by Sydney-based creative collective Amigo & Amigo – interprets and extends the beauty of the harp into a colourful, walk-through sound and light experience.
Corpi Celesti– or heavenly bodies – is an immersive celebration of the first landing on the moon. In this interactive installation, Italy-based artists Daniele Davino, Daniele Spanò and Luca Brinchi combine the innovative techniques of video mapping and digital lights with traditional techniques of painting and analogue cinema, restoring old films and adapting them into new animated clips.
Our Connected City seeks to connect the city with light. On every day of the year, our city’s buildings stand on their own - with their own colours, structures and identities. During Vivid Sydney this changes, and the connections between the city’s architecture and its people become more profound with a vibrant and colourful lighting design. These spectacular images of Sydney’s icons fill Australians with pride and are projected around the world.
With 11 restaurants and bars featuring spectacular views of Sydney Harbour, Crown Sydney offers a range of fine dining venues, signature restaurants and deluxe bars.
The 2021 program is full of ways to discover Vivid Sydney for the first time or reconnect with this truly unique event.
