Sydney Opera House, Vivid Sydney, Songlines

The Sydney Opera House is illuminated for the Vivid Sydney Festival which is running from 22 May to 18 June 2016. Vivid Sydney is a festival of light, music and ideas now in its eighth year and the biggest festival of its type in the world. This year's "Lighting the Sails" display is called "Songlines", featuring contemporary indigenous artworks by Karla Dickens, Djon Mundine, Gabriella Possum Nungurrayi, Reko Rennie, Donny Woolagoodja, and the late Gulumbu Yunupingu.

    1. And the festival gets more and more popular. There are so many great displays that I can't even photograph now because they get swamped with people.

  4. Wow! Gotta love this festival. The displays are so varied. Do they present something different every night or is the performance the same?

    1. Ruth, it's an animated show that runs for something like twenty or thirty minutes and it is replayed throughout the festival. They have a new show every year.
