Sydney must be one of the best cities in the world for free family outdoor entertainment. Starting the year with the summery Sydney Festival and all the outdoor gigs like Opera in the Domain, Symphony in the Domain, outdoor movies and theatre performances, we are now heading towards the annual mid-winter festival called Vivid. It started off in 2009 and has grown bigger ever since. Last year it had 400,000 visitors. Take the kids and stroll around the city, the Rocks and Circular Quay to explore spectacular light installations, music events, night markets and art shows.
My top five picks (not all kid friendly)
1. Light installation - Opera House.
This years transformation of the famous sails is being done by german artist collective Urbanscreen. In addition to that there will be more than 50 light installations around Circular Quay.
2. Museum of Contemporary Art
Lighting, free art exhibitions and art bar. The new wing of the museum opened two weeks ago and I can't wait to have a look.
3. The Temper Trap
The Aussi band will be performing in the Opera House on May 31 and June 1. I like their music and you can listen here.
4. Lomo Magic
Anyone with a passion for this type of photography. Course is on at June 2nd and costs $180. Diana Camera included.
5. The Argyle
Absacker and some house music.
