Vivid Sydney 2022: Expect the Unexpected


    Vivid Sydney 2022 will kick off from May 27th and will set in motion a series of dazzling music concerts, creative talks, intense light sculptures, and a plethora of ambiguous public artworks and exhibitions for 23 days. The new theme “Soul of Our City” will shed a new light on the character, history, culture, and the very essence  of the harbour city through immersive experiences. As the annual festival of light, music and ideas fast approaches, here are some noteworthy attractions to enjoy this extravaganza to the fullest.


    Vivid Sydney Cruise


    Vivid Sydney 2022 has been in the making for over two years, promising to be bigger and better than ever with the harbour taking the centre stage. This explosive event of colour and activity transforms the harbour into a wonderland of blissful installations and the ideal way for you to experience this is on a Vivid Harbour Cruise. Choose from three impressive vessels including a premium glass boat, a multi-million dollar catamaran, and a classic paddlewheeler and traverse across the harbour waterways in style! Savour a delicious array of dishes and enjoy the luxury of a fully licensed bar as you take in the views of the harbour icons– the Opera House, Harbour Bridge, Fort Denison and many more! Be ready to click some breathtaking shots of the Lighting of the Sails of the Opera House as you will cruise past it not once but twice!


    Vivid Ideas Highlights


    The beauty of Vivid Sydney lies in the art of creating a fire within the revellers and this is why the festival is not just about colourful patterns and exhilarating music. The creative storytellers are an imperative part of Vivid Sydney and this year's lineup will surely shake the minds of the listeners. World-famous singer-songwriter and pop sensation, Troye Sivan, will share his perception on beauty, creativity, fashion and queer politics at Sydney Town Hall. Another headliner is the fearless Gretchen Carlson, an advocate for women’s rights and the front face of the #MeToo movement and she will join forces with TV superstar Lisa Wilkinson to explore the imbalances of gender power equations, seeking to expose toxic workplace stereotypes. Vivid also lay on other prominent topics such as The Future of Drugs, where the essential ideal is to enlighten the listeners about the potential benefits of psychoactive drugs and medicinal cannabis on the betterment of mental health and the treatment of clinical psychological conditions.


    Central Station– Music Show


    Vivid Sydney has a lot of festival firsts in store for us including the longest Light Walk in history, an 8km walking trail that links the Opera House all the way to the Central Station. Right when you get off this heritage railway station you can catch tunes from the Grand Concourse, where a talented lineup of diverse and invigorating artists seek to bring history to this famous location. Groove to the rock n roll psychedelia by the legendary British space-rock band, Spiritualized as they make their triumphant return to the festival, jam to the bluegrass sounds of Sydney’s own The Morrisons and listen to the love tales of  Cope St Parade.


    General Tips to enjoy the festival

    • Use public transport. Bring your cars to the harbourside and the road closures and crowds will make it less enjoyable.
    • Consider a cruise if you're not a fan of crowded spaces.
    • Go on Sunday–Monday to get the best shots of the festival.
    • If you're a local avoid seeing everything in one night, remember you have three weeks to explore. Check the website and cover the ones you think are best for you. Although, it'll be tough choosing just a few from them!
