The Eye Live Project is the first of its kind in Sydney Tower Eye which will introduce a program of live music to the tower during Vivid Festival 2017. STE standing 76 stories above street level boasts 360 degree views over Sydney and in particular impressive views over the the Vivid precincts.
Eye Live Project will host a lineup of significant forward thinking artists from the flourishing Australian music scene. As Sydney’s musical landscape is constantly evolving, we believe it is important to continue to uniquely innovate and push the boundaries of live music. Given the landscape of the venue we believe this is a great opportunity to disrupt the ideology of the norm in live music experience.
