Vivid Sydney - Light, Music and Ideas - Sydney Harbour


• Friday 27 May 2016 to Monday 13 June 2016


Vivid Sydney is a unique annual event of light, music and ideas, featuring an outdoor 'gallery' of extraordinary lighting sculptures, a cutting-edge contemporary music program, some of the world's most important creative industry forums and, of course, the spectacular illumination of the Sydney Opera House sails.

It positions Sydney as the creative hub of Australia and the Asia-Pacific region, and delivers both innovative live entertainment and creative inspiration on a grand scale.

The creative people of the world - from industry professionals to aspiring practitioners to the merely curious - are invited to Sydney annually to watch the city transform into a breathtaking canvas of creative expression. For 18 days, creative practitioners, corporate professionals, families and people of all generations take advantage of Sydney's mild winter weather and engage with a truly spectacular event.
