VIVID FESTIVAL AT CHATSWOOD WILL BE AN ‘AQUATIC WONDERLAND’ JOURNEY, DIFFERENT TO ANYTHING IN THE CBD

295411-67f24c44-cd2f-11e4-86fb-8e8c5f67b895Chatswood CBD will be transformed into an aquatic wonderland, featuring giant sea creatures, an aquarium and a 3D animation as part of the Vivid Sydney Festival.

For the first time the event will expand into the suburbs with Chatswood, Chippendale, Pyrmont and the University of Sydney added to the 18-day program starting on May 22.

The lights will amp up nightly from 6pm to 11pm.

There will also be late night dining options and a special pop-up bar at The Concourse.

Willoughby Mayor Gail Giles-Gidney said artists from Ample Projects had designed the precinct as one connected light walk.

“People can go on a journey from when they arrive on the train to the Concourse,” Cr Giles-Gidney said.

“It’s designed to be accessible for families and disabled people.

“It provides a unique ­experience for families on the north shore and is very different to the Sydney CBD events.

“It will have remarkable economic development ­opportunities for the area.”

Vivid Sydney creative ­director Ignatius Jones said Vivid Chatswood would feature giant lanterns, with “storytelling on a grand scale through projection and sound.”
