Crowd chaos as thousands pack Sydney Harbour foreshore for Vivid drone show

Chaos unfolded at Sydney’s annual light show Vivid Sydney overnight as thousands of people crammed onto the harbour foreshore to catch a glimpse of the drone show.

Scores of people packed Circular Quay to view the Love is in the Air drone show about 9.10pm.

The show features 700 drones creating “stunning symbols of love including a love heart, cupid’s arrow, flowers” over the harbour, according to Vivid organisers.


Spectators have criticised the festival’s lack of crowd control after people became trapped, forcing police to remove surrounding barriers.

The crowd level was reportedly on par with New Year’s Eve celebrations as additional people turned out over the long weekend.

The police mounted unit was called in and an ambulance was spotted at the scene while crowds attempted to walk from the overseas passenger terminal to Wynyard Station.
