Vivid Sydney is back again from 23 May to 9 June and this year it is bigger, better and brighter than ever before. The 18-day annual event of light, music and ideas has become Sydney’s major festival in winter attracting hundreds of thousands of visitors to signature events such as the Lighting the Sails of the Sydney Opera House and the beautiful, meandering journey around the harbour for the much-loved Light Walk.
