City of Colour

The 2015 Sydney New Year’s Eve theme is City of Colour, a tribute to our beaches, parks and vibrant city streets, along with our diverse backgrounds, culture and rich history.

SydNYE logo

Fitting for a city bursting with life, this year’s logo is a stunning expression of all the things that make the city so diverse. Flora, fauna, landscapes, culture and the built environment all come together to create a fun, colourful scene – just like the city itself.

The City of Sydney developed the theme in collaboration with Imagination Australia. Groundbreaking Australian designers Romance Was Born and up-and-coming artistic force Province provided creative ideas and elements.

This year’s lighting designer is Ziggy Zegler and the soundtrack producer is Alex Gooden.
