Lights, music and ideas. They are the three categories for the art, culture, and entertainment that Vivid brings to Sydney every year. At Glenco, we love Vivid. It’s great to see all the creative ways lighting, electricity, technology and creativity are brought together by the minds behind the festival. It is also the time of year that shows off our beautiful city and its main attractions.
After our wettest March since 1984, with triple the average rainfall, and the coldest April in 9 years, Sydney is yet again in for some wild weather this weekend.
