Coast Down to Darling Harbour for Vivid
Sydney's most spectacular outdoor lighting event, Vivid Sydney, has arrived to take over the city after dark from the 24th May until 10th June 2013, creating a spectacular canvas of light, music and ideas.

The 18 day festival of light, which colours Sydney with creativity and inspiration, is immensely popular and not to be missed. In fact, Vivid Sydney is the biggest festival of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere and last year attracted around 500,000 attendees.

Along with its amazing eye-catching light installations, is a host of free exhibitions, outdoor lighting sculptures and contemporary music performances from local and international artists.

The world class light show is this year is also being extended to the Darling Harbour precinct for the first time ever, and will 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, and masterminded by France's legendary Aquatique Show International.

Darling Harbour will also feature a Citibank Pop-up Bar, open from 6pm to midnight during Vivid Sydney, and the Australian National Maritime Museum will light up with a rooftop projection inspired by the colour, patterns, flavours and sounds of India to complement the museum's exhibition - East of India.

Darling Harbour restaurants are also offering special deals throughout the festival. Coast restaurant is offering a special deal during the festival, where you can watch the show away from the crowds on the rooftop bar, share a platter for two, with a glass of wine each for $48 per couple. *Not valid with any other offer.
