City envy: we want a light-up, bridge-top dancefloor like Sydney

Written by

Those who like to get high on a night out will be well jel of Sydney’s latest temporary attraction: an illuminated dancefloor perched a casual 134 metres in the sky. For three weeks from May 26, the top of the world-famous Sydney Harbour Bridge will be home to a rather vertiginous ’70s-style dancing deck.

The ‘Dance Floor in the Sky’ is being erected as part of the city’s annual Vivid Sydney art and technology festival, and can accommodate 14 daring disco-lovers at a time. Professional climbers will help ticketholders to scale the summit before setting them free to dance the night away (carefully), surrounded by the lights of the city.

It’ll run every night except in case of electrical storms or high winds. And if that’s not extreme dedication to the art of partying, we don’t know what is.

And if Sydney’s a bit far, Up at The O2 is probably the closest London gets.
