Vivid SydneyIn a few hours, the city of Sydney will be transformed into a light city when the world’s largest light, music and ideas festival, Vivid Sydney, kicks off on Friday evening.

 
The 23-night extravaganza kicks off at 6 p.m. (AEST) local time and features more than 90 light installations – a dramatic increase from its humble beginnings in 2009, which featured only 25 light installations.

 
For the first time the world of Australian Indigenous art will be celebrated on the Sydney Opera House sails, and installations will illuminate the Royal Botanic Garden and Taronga Zoo.

 
New South Wales (NSW) state tourism minister Stuart Ayres told Xinhua that Vivid is the biggest major event the state hosts.

 

“There is more than 90 light installations, 1,500 hours of programmed music events and 170 creative events,” Ayres said.

 

“There is plenty to surprise and delight all-comers, whether you are a first-time visitor or a festival regular.”
