Kings Cross’ landmark Coke billboard will be transformed into a show of lighting, colours and special effects to celebrate Vivid Sydney 2017.

It’s all part of the Vivid festival’s debut Kings Cross program, Vivid KX, which aims to celebrate Sydney’s historic precinct of performance art, immersive theatre, avant-cabaret, music, cult films and talking heads.

The Coke sign will feature a Characters Of Kings Cross image series by photographer Katherine Williams, with portraits of some of Kings Cross’ most famous locals, including celebrity chef Kylie Kwong.

There’ll also be a series of cult films, basement parties, a murder mystery tour at Crane Bar and more.

Vivid Sydney 2017 runs from Friday May 26 – Saturday June 17.
