Vivid Sydney 2011

This winter Sydney will once again be transformed into a vibrant canvas for light, music, art and ideas during the 2011 Vivid Sydney festival. Approaching its third birthday, Vivid Sydney promises to be infused with more creativity and innovation than the city has ever seen before. You won't believe your eyes as the streets, skyscrapers and sidewalks become the stage for breathtaking light shows and installations after dark, illuminating every nook and cranny of the city from the sails of the Opera House to the walls of the iconic Customs House. This year, the festival is even infiltrating various storefronts, restaurants and bars throughout The Rocks. And to top it all off there's Vivid Live, an extraordinary lineup of eclectic bands and performances that will be on throughout the festival, all coordinated by Modular's Stephen Pavlovic. Vivid Sydney 2011 has the potential to break all boundaries of festivals across the globe, and will no doubt show the world why Sydney is unquestionably the creative hub of the Asia Pacific.

This winter Sydney will once again be transformed into a vibrant canvas for light, music, art and ideas during the 2011 Vivid Sydney festival. Approaching its third birthday, Vivid Sydney promises to be infused with more creativity and innovation than the city has ever seen before.

The Fire Dance display in Campbells Cove is just the beginning of what Vivid Sydney has to offer. A playful show of flaming geysers will perform five times each night of the festival, the flames strong enough to spread a little warmth to viewers admiring from the harbour in the chilly winter air.

You won't believe your eyes as the streets, skyscrapers and sidewalks become the stage for breathtaking light shows and installations after dark, illuminating every nook and cranny of the city from the sails of the Opera House to the walls of the iconic Customs House. This year, the festival is even infiltrating various storefronts, restaurants and bars throughout The Rocks that will have special Vivid window displays, menus and cocktails.

To top it all up there's Vivid Live, an extraordinary lineup of eclectic bands and performances that will be on throughout the festival, all coordinated by Modular's Stephen Pavlovic. This lineup is bound to have something for everyone. Among the hit acts announced to perform are Bag Raiders, Architecture in Helsinki, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Wolfmother, The Avalances, Tame Impala and the Presets. And that's not even half.
