White night versus Vivid Sydney

Hi

Sorry to revive a bit of the old Melbourne/Sydney rivalry but I was wondering how White Night and Vivid Sydney compare. I went to White Night in Melbourne and enjoyed it, although I had a few issues with it. These were mainly about the overcrowding and lack of facilities. I haven't been to Vivid Sydney but what I have seen on TV and the internet it looks pretty impressive. Who has seen both? Is it fair to compare the two? Why can't Melbourne's White Night be extended over more than one night? Vivid Sydney seems to go for quite a few nights. I feel that us Melbournians may have been subjected to a bit of hype by a few blowhards here about how great White Night was.

I think it's a little insulting to refer to people who posted about enjoying an event as "blowhards".

I thought this thread pointed out both the good and not so good features of the Melbourne event, particularly the over-crowding:
