Train travel will never be the same again: in an Australian first, Vivid Sydney today announced Tekno Train by Paul Mac, a one-of-a-kind event that will transform a Sydney Trains service into a moving, sensory sound and light experience for 23 nights only.

Exclusive to Vivid Sydney, the Southern Hemisphere’s leading multi-artform festival, and in collaboration with Sydney Trains, Tekno Train by Paul Mac will radically reinvent train travel as a thrilling musical adventure for a limited time only.

Passengers will be treated to an original techno soundtrack composed by Paul Mac, especially for Tekno Train. Ticketholders will take their seat on what appears to be a standard K-set train.

As the train leaves Central Station, the adventure begins. Hidden lights and speakers will create a communal experience with synchronised lights, driven by techno music.

Minister for Jobs and Tourism John Graham said: “Multi-ARIA Award winner Paul Mac composing the tracks on the tracks will lift a routine experience like jumping on a train in the city into a joyous moment and a unique, shared experience.

The NSW Government supports the project through Destination NSW and Create NSW, the Australian Government through Creative Australia, its primary arts investment and advisory body, and the Wales Family Foundation.
