Make the Most of Vivid Sydney This Winter

How to Make the Most of Your Vivid Sydney Experience This Winter

Sydney's Vivid Festival is back this winter! Are you ready? Here's how to make the most of your Vivid experience when you stay over. 

Expect plenty of lights, music, live performances, art and more. The three week stint (27 May - 18 June) is a creative showcase for artists, thinkers and performers to make their mark, while curious minds and passersby experience the best of the festival.

Don’t miss the longest continuous Light Walk in the history of the event. It will stretch 8km from the Sydney Opera House to Central Station. The iconic Sydney Opera House will be a key feature for exciting light projections, such as the Lighting of the Sails.

Other city structures such as Sydney Harbour Bridge, Customs House and the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia will also play a role in the Vivid spectacle. Be sure to check these sites out. 

Aside from all the incredible light displays, there will be more than 85 interactive talks and workshops, along with live entertainment for everyone to enjoy.
