Explore a Secret Neon Playground at Dark Spectrum

Dark Spectrum 2024
Dark Spectrum

Dark Spectrum is a mind-bending journey through the Wynyard Tunnels that's nothing short of a neon fever dream. Imagine stepping back in time, then rocketing straight into the present, all while being surrounded by a dizzying array of colours and lights.

We're talking 300 lasers creating a kaleidoscope of colours you can reach out and touch, 500 handcrafted lanterns lighting the way, and over 250 searchlights guiding you through an intense underworld. And just when you think it can't get any cooler, boom – an epic soundtrack of dance anthems and club bangers pulls you even deeper into this kilometre-long labyrinth of eight uniquely immersive chambers. Light, sound, and colour are about to have a wild party, and you’re on the guest list.

Thanks to the brainiacs at Sony Music, Culture Creative, and Mandylights, and as a dazzling highlight of Vivid Sydney 2024, Dark Spectrum is your chance to turn on, tune in, and drop out into a world where mystery and music mingle.

Kick things off at Wynyard Park, nestled between York Street and Carrington Street, where the adventure begins. With your ticket in hand, a steward will lead you down the rabbit hole. And don't worry about ending up in Narnia – you'll pop back into reality on Cumberland Street in The Rocks.

Heads up: this cashless wonderland is all about the new school, so leave your coins at home.

Ready to light up your night with a splash of spectral magic? Dark Spectrum: A New Journey is waiting to blow your mind.
