NSW Deputy Premier and Minister for Trade and Investment, Andrew Stoner, announced today that Vivid Sydney 2013 will extend to the Darling Harbour precinct for the first time.
Developed, owned and managed by the NSW Government’s tourism and major events agency Destination NSW, Vivid Sydney is an 18-day festival of light, music and ideas. It is the biggest festival of its kind in the southern hemisphere and will take place in Sydney from 24 May to 10 June.
For the first time in Vivid Sydney’s five-year history, Vivid Light will extend to Darling Harbour and transform the precinct into a spectacle of dancing water fountains, water screen projection performances and dazzling light and water shows, never seen before in Australia, masterminded by France’s legendary Aquatique Show International.
Aquatique Show International has developed and installed choreographed water and light shows for public entertainment for more than 30 years, amazing audiences in over 52 countries.
Mr Stoner said: “Vivid Sydney brings visitors something new and spectacular every year – and this year is no exception. Bringing Vivid Light to Darling Harbour will give visitors an amazing and unique Australian-first experience that will showcase the world’s best lighting and water technology, artistry and design. It’s sure to be something people will come back to many times over the duration of Vivid Sydney.
