Cinewav

Vivid Sydney has partnered with Cinewav in 2022. Cinewav is a world-first technology that allows you to watch a large-scale visual display while listening to the audio on your smartphone (in high quality and perfectly in sync). 

This year at Vivid Sydney you can LISTEN to specific exhibits, like the projection on the Sails of the Sydney Opera House, by using the Cinewav app. Now you can watch AND LISTEN to the soundtrack of the exhibit from anywhere: on the water, across the water, from the top of a building. Just remember to bring your favourite headphones! First 100,000 downloads per night are free.  For more information, please visit our Trip Planning page.
