The Sydney Opera House will be used as the backdrop and canvas for the annual Vivid Sydney festival, celebrating light, music, and ideas. The Sydney Harbour Bridge will also see some added color in this year’s festival, along with Darling Harbour. The Vivid Sydney festivalwill be running through June 10., Asia’s leading hotel booking site and part of Nasdaq-listed Priceline Group (Nasdaq:PCLN), is illuminating great deals on hotels in Sydney, Australia for the annual Vivid Sydney Light, Music & Idea Festival, which takes place this year from May 24 – June 10.

For the past 5 years, the festival has been wowing crowds with famous Sydney landmarks wrapped in thousands of meters of lights or used as massive canvasses, presenting giant expanses of rippling, morphing illuminated designs or photos. Earlier this year, the call went out worldwide for artists to send in expressions of interest, ensuring that the show will again have an international makeup reflecting a variety of backgrounds and cultures.
