What is Vivid Sydney?
A 23-day festival of light, music and ideas, owned, managed and produced by Destination NSW, Australia’s New South Wales Government’s tourism and major events agency. It celebrates creativity and innovation and has three main parts – large scale light installations and projections (Vivid Light), music performances and collaborations (Vivid Music including Vivid LIVE at the Sydney Opera House); and creative ideas, discussion and debate (Vivid Ideas). The programmes are held across the city, including Luna Park Sydney, The Rocks and Circular Quay, the Royal Botanic Garden Sydney, Darling Harbour, Barangaroo, Taronga Zoo, and Chatswood.
At 6 pm every evening (at 5.30pm at Taronga Zoo and Chatswood), the light installations come to life and can be seen until 11pm. The Vivid Light walk stretching from The Rocks around Circular Quay and deep into the Royal Botanic Garden Sydney is free of charge. Lighting the Sails unfurls across the Sydney Opera House. Barangaroo, Darling Harbour, Luna Park Sydney, Chatswood and Taronga Zoo are some of the other places to enjoy the illumination.
Enjoy live musical performances and musical collaborations ranging from local and international artists at the iconic Sydney Opera House to other large venues and small bars. At the heart of Vivid Music is Vivid LIVE, a program of cutting-edge music, which takes place at the Sydney Opera House, Australia’s most famous building.
See technology build a vivid world by fusing creative and innovative ideas. From technology and start-up culture to design and architecture, film and screen content to visual arts and performance, advertising and marketing to animation, VFX, lighting and other events form the core of this Asia Pacific annual celebration.
