Vivid Sydney

25 July 2018

Vivid Sydney is an annual festival that sparks the soul of our city with creative brilliance for 23 days and nights. Celebrating its 12th year in 2022, Vivid Sydney fuses art, innovation and technology in collaboration with some of the most boundary-pushing artists, thinkers and musicians of our time.

The 2022 festival features more than 200 installations and events at dozens of venues and open spaces across Sydney’s CBD, with 3D light projections, cross-art form installations, exhilarating live music and deep-dive discussions. Vivid Sydney proudly supports the NSW visitor economy, from our creative industries to entertainment and hospitality venues, accommodation providers and retailers.

In 2019, Vivid Sydney attracted a record 2.4 million attendees and injected $172 million into NSW’s visitor economy and was once again awarded Best Tourism Event at the prestigious Australian Event Awards.

Vivid Sydney is owned, managed and produced by Destination NSW and will take place from 27 May to 18 June in 2022.
