“The drones showcased different shapes and colours to reveal a never-seen-before bespoke animation”
“100 illuminated drones performed a spectacular seven-minute choreographed routine over Sydney Harbour”
Drone 100 made its world debut to the public as part of Vivid Sydney in 2016. For five nights only, 100 illuminated drones performed a spectacular seven-minute choreographed routine over Sydney Harbour, accompanied by a live performance of Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony by the Sydney Youth Orchestra.
When its inaugural flight took place in November 2015 in Hamburg, Germany, Drone 100 set a Guinness World Record for the greatest number of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) flying simultaneously. For Vivid Sydney, Alfred and the Drone 100 team pushed the limits of what was previously achieved, performing for the first time ever above water, in front of a live, public audience in the heart of a major city with the Sydney Opera House sails as a backdrop for this unique event.
