Back for its 11th year in the capital of New South Wales, the annual “light, music, and ideas festival” will transform Sydney’s skyline into a colorful spectrum from 6 p.m. onwards daily, with performances designed by light artists, music makers, and other creatives.

Spanning nine precincts in the Australian city, the massive outdoor gallery of light art warrants multiple visits to take it all in. Highlights include “A Kaleidoscopic Tale”, an illumination of more than 3,000 LED lights on Luna Park’s Ferris wheel; as well as “Torus”, a wavy reflection of light and sound expressions inspired by the mathematical equation known as the Fibonacci sequence—it also interacts with people’s vibrations and emotions.
