The two-week LUMINOUS festival, launched last week with the lighting of the iconic building’s sails, also features a plethora of music acts, alongside public talks and art installations.

Part of Vivid Sydney, a city wide mid-year festival, its musical highlights include Battles, Ladytron, Lee Scratch Perry, Jon Hassell, Reggie Watts and Karl Hyde.

Eno’s spectacular visual light show will be projected on the sails from 6pm – 1am during the three weeks of LUMINOUS May 26-June 14.
