Head to the heavens in 2023 with Vivid Sydney’s drone shows, the biggest in the Southern Hemisphere to date. An awe-inspiring journey through the natural world above us – exploring our solar system, from the Sun to Jupiter, with plenty of surprising stops and visitors along the way.

For millennia, humanity has looked towards the stars for both guidance and inspiration, gazing at blankets of stars and distant worlds. Constellations point us in the right way; astronomers and astrologists alike look for meaning in the stars, and space’s endless possibilities offer artists, thinkers and creatives the drive to push into new artistic and scientific frontiers.

Vivid Sydney will take to the skies for an unmissable show. What will you find written in the stars?
