Celebrating creativity, innovation and technology, Vivid Sydney will dazzle and delight audiences from 24 May to 15 June across four pillars - Vivid Light, Vivid Music, Vivid Ideas and Vivid Food.

Owned, managed and produced proudly by Destination NSW, Vivid Sydney is a vital economic driver for NSW during the winter months.

The festival achieved the biggest attendance record and largest visitor expenditure in its history in 2023, boasting a crowd of more than 3.48 million and $206.1 million in visitor expenditure.

The festival also boosted the visitor economy throughout the state, with 36,500 Vivid Sydney visitors travelling to regional NSW and spending an estimated $21.7 million.

The theme for Vivid Sydney 2024 is Humanity, shining a spotlight on what makes us human – love, kindness, compassion and creativity.

The community-focused festival will once again transform the Harbour City into an illuminating kaleidoscope of colour. The 2024 program will boast a mesmerising free public exhibition of outdoor lighting sculptures and 3D projections, cutting-edge contemporary music events, innovative creative industry forums and talks at Vivid Ideas, as well as a dedicated Vivid Food program that will be a feast for the senses.
