When you think Vivid Sydney, you think lights — and this year is no exception. The Sydney Harbour Bridge, Sydney Opera House, Circular Quay and The Rocks are all stunning architectural landmarks and, over the course of the festival, they'll all be bathed in vibrant lights. Created by artist collective Mandylights, Our Connected City will see hundreds of synchronised colour-changing lights pulse across the Harbour Bridge, then through The Rocks, around Circular Quay and onto the Sydney Opera House forecourt for the first time ever. Plus, 150 light beams will dance across the night sky while more light sources will illuminate the surface of Sydney Harbour. Expect to fall back in love with the city — and its creatives — in a powerful new way.
