Breathtaking Videos From the Opening Night of Sydney’s Vivid Festival

The largest and most populous city in Australia will once again be transformed into a spectacular canvas of light, music and ideas during the third annual Vivid festival.

The spectacular show started on Friday and will last for more than two weeks.

To celebrate the opening night of Vivid Sydney, French design team Superbien produced a special 15 minute lighting performance to music, giving onlookers a taste of the 3D mapping designs.

Around 400,000 Sydneysiders and visitors are expected to attend as many prominent buildings around the city will be bathed in light, with the Sydney Opera House being central stage.
