Vivid Festival - Sydneys' winter festival - light, music and ideas

"Vivid Sydney is back to shine light, music and ideas across the city in the biggest festival of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere.  

From large-scale light installations and projections through to music performances, ideas, creative summits and beyond..." VIVID SYDNEY OFFICIAL SITE

Everyone of every age that sees the vivid festival raves about it. We checked out Ricki Lee Jones in the Opera Theatre which was such an amazing venue for this amazing singer/songwroter/muscian. We enjoyed the lights and atmosphere before and after the show with a drink overlooking the harbour bridge and Luna Park.
