Vivid Sydney: What to Expect for The Upcoming Festival


    Winter season in Sydney, and Australia in general, is marked by a zealous festive energy that is a result of the arrival of a wide variety of events that happen over the course of time. One such festival and probably the most massive one among the lot is the annual Vivid Sydney, which is a large-scale exhibition of lights, music and ideas.  For 23 days from the 27th of May, through June 18, the city will transform into a wonderland of magical colours, music concerts and light installations.  So if you're interested in finding out more of what’s to come, read along.

    Vivid Sydney is an ideal time for families to go about and watch some of the city’s towering structures and landmark attractions in a new light and there's no better option than the harbour cruises. Sydney Harbour is one of the go-to venues for Sydneysiders as it plays host to arguably the most attractive spectacle of the festival, the Lighting of the Sails of the Opera House, among others. Sign up for a Vivid Dinner Cruise and witness some of the most mesmerising vistas of the harbour while you enjoy delicious food and drinks. You have a lot of options when it comes to choosing a vessel including the popular paddlewheeler, the premium glass boat and a modern catamaran, all exceptionally designed cruises. Spend most of your time enjoying the alluring views of the city skyline, after which you can head inside to savour the freshly prepared dishes. Take your experience to further heights by purchasing drinks and pairing it with the delicious food! Don’t forget to bring your cameras along as you will be cruising under the famous  Harbour Bridge not once, but twice!


    Music for Everyone!


    Vivid 2022 has numerous festival firsts in store for us, including the longest ever Light Walk, which will snake around the city from the Central Station. The bustling front of Central Station offers a series of free music concerts and live performances, which will be an ideal stop for some excitement while you're on your way to start or end your Vivid exploration. Enjoy everything from space rock music, gypsy tunes, hip-hop beats and plenty more! Little ones can enjoy free music and other shows every Saturday night at Tumbalong Park with major acts from The Vegetable Plot, Teeny Tiny Stevies and more!


    Vivid Installations at Circular Quay and Darling Harbour


    The lights are the major highlight of the event and everyone from far and near cannot be more excited to discover what the festival has planned for 2022. One main drawcard of the lineup is the Sydney Infinity, which is a robotic fountain that can burst upto nine tonnes of water into the air in only one second. This massive-scale liquid and light spectacle is powered by huge LEDs, resulting in a visual treat. Somewhere else in the Quay, you can get mesmerised by vivid projections of creatures, planets and inventions in a fantastic light art inspired by a 11-year old resident!


    Talks that Inspire You


    Vivid ain’t all about lights, music and food.  The biggest festival of lights, music and ideas also sheds light on important topics such as gender politics, workplace toxicity, entertainment, dark sides of stardom and much more! Head to the Australian Institute of Music for captivating talks and performances to gain a deeper insight about where the music industry is headed to next. Music enthusiasts and upcoming superstars can learn about inventions such as the Ipods and mobile phones and about Australian music innovations. Elsewhere, Vivid Sydney Games District hosts an event where gamers can meet up with other gamers and create their favourite titles, listen to exclusive talks and even play some of the latest releases.
