Vivid Sydney 2014

Vivid Sydney is big – it’s now the largest event of its kind in Australia with a world-class line-up of concert and music performances, public ideas programs, creative industry workshops and conferences.

Vivid Light transforms Sydney into a wonderland of 'light art' sculptures, innovative light installations and grand-scale projections for all to enjoy - for free. It is a magical celebration of light-design excellence and the world's largest outdoor 'art-gallery': a unique Vivid Sydney experience.

Vivid Music presents 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 Sydney 2015 will host a lively and eclectic range of live performances and ground-breaking musical collaborations.

Vivid Ideas brings together business and creative leaders for professional development, information updates on their industries, market opportunities and innovation: gathering all the conversations, conventions and big announcements in Sydney.

Vivid Sydney is where art, technology and commerce intersect.
