Sydney's been experimenting with all sorts of interesting late-night initiatives to breath fresh energy into the city's night-life. There's talk of late opening shops, museums and bars, as well as actual local residents enjoying themselves and even getting some sleep. The council is still gathering opinions, and while they think, Vivid Sydney — itself a form of late-night nightlife — is having an early turn at sorting out this mix by drawing CBD shops and comestibles into the night-time vibe for their Great Night Out.
During Vivid Sydney, the Vivid Rocks Night Markets are opening their stalls Friday and Saturday nights to provide you with music, cheapish food and even some shopping to go with your Vivid light-peeping evening experience. Shops and restaurants across the CBD and the rocks will be offering specials to go with the festival, and after stopping in at some you can see a few extra light sculptures under the QVB dome. All the while 2manydjs will be broadcasting live for triple-J from the Opera House's studios. If creative talk, live music and brain-bending light shows aren't enough for you at Vivid this year, A Great Night Out answers the question of what more you could possibly want.
