This year Vivid Sydney promises to be bigger and better than ever. Running from the 22nd May until the 8th June, Vivid has become recognized as a festival of lights. Prominent Sydney icons such as the Opera House and Customs House are transformed during the event. Last year more 1.43 million people visited Sydney.


Vivid is about more than lights though. Vivid encompasses Lights, Music & Ideas, and this year visitors can expect a cutting-edge contemporary music program from local and international acts performing at the iconic Sydney Opera House, to other large venues and small bars.

Vivid Ideas is the Asia Pacific’s annual celebration of innovation, creativity and community. Over the festival’s 18 days, Vivid Ideas brings together business and creative leaders for professional development, information updates on their industries, and market opportunities and innovation.
