It seems like I’ve been quite the social butterfly this week with wrap ups of The Spoolettes, The Finders Keepers markets and now Vivid! it will have to make up for all those times I’m a complete homebody and hang out at home for weeks on end.
Vivid Sydney has been going for a few years now. The basic concept is lights onto buildings, which sounds a little ok? and then you realise that the buildings include The Sydney Opera House.
That takes a simple light show and makes it really spectacular. Apparently the whole concept was dreamed up when they realised that Sydneysiders stayed in during the entire of winter. So they created a festival at night, right in the middle of the cold season. It could’ve been a complete flop but it’s actually a great success.
