Due to the recommendations of the Australian Government and health authorities regarding non-essential, organised gatherings of more than 500 people, the 2020 Vivid Sydney event was cancelled. Please check back later in the year for details on the 2021 event
Vivid Sydney is a 23-day festival which offers a range of public exhibitions, installations and live music.
Hosted by the NSW Government, Vivid Sydney is one of the largest of its kind in the world and is broken down into three main segments: Vivid Light, Vivid Music and Vivid Ideas.
Vivid Sydney 2021 Festival Dates, Light Show, Program, Cruises & Tickets
Vivid Sydney runs day and night and the projections and Lights On runs between 6pm – 11pm. The best places to view the Vivid Light show is from the Sydney Opera House, The Rocks, Bradfield Park and from Darling Harbour. The Vivid Light Walk is free for all to enjoy and visitors are able to purchase tickets for the Music and Ideas events including shows inside the Sydney Opera House and inside Taronga Zoo.
The Taronga Zoo exhibition is a favourite for many families as there will be amazing animal light sculptures and the session runs for 2 hours, perfect for those looking for a shorter experience to enjoy during the festival. Sessions run from 5.30pm, 6.30pm and 7.30pm each evening. All proceeds from the event go directly back to conservation projects.
