Vivid Sydney | Light, Music and Ideas Festival 🔔

Whether you're a resident or a visitor, it's not uncommon to know that Sydney is the home to events of all different types. Music, food, culture - we have it all! 

If like us, you like to be organised and plan well in advance (is there anything better than having something fun to look forward to?!), you'll be just as excited to hear what's coming up soon - Vivid Sydney | Light, Music and Ideas Festival. Celebrating its 10th year as Australia's largest event, the festival is set to start on Friday the 25th of May for 23 days until Saturday the 16th of June. 

The Vivid Light Festival is an annual outdoor celebration of well, light! The city is transformed and filled with light installations and grand projections onto some of Sydneys most iconic and reputable places. Truly unique to Australia, the light celebration features designs from a huge range of Sydneys artists and designers. 

Vivid Music is manufactured for those wanting to experience a mixture of new and contemporary styles of live music collaborations. With venues all over Sydney being selected - obviously including THE Opera House and artists ranging from local to international stars, the festival really will be the talk, or sound, of the town!

Not forgetting Vivid Ideas and speakers - the celebration of innovation, creativity and community. Vivid Ideas focuses on events that will bring together people from varying sectors as well as levels, and offers the opportunity to learn, grow and expand one's knowledge or offer it to others. An inspirational and rewarding event at our doorsteps!
