Vivid shines on Sydney

The Vivid Sydney 2023 program is dazzling. (Just take a look at these illuminating photos by our photographer Michelle Haywood to see how!)

While not all of Vivid’s 300 activations and events are free this year, festival goers can still find more than 100 free events to enjoy across the city.

Australia’s brightest festival is immersing the harbour city in colour and light for 23 days and nights from Friday, May 26, across four pillars – Vivid Light, Vivid Music, Vivid Ideas and for the first time, Vivid Food.

This year’s creative direction, “Vivid Sydney, Naturally,” has been inspired by the city’s connection to the natural environment and will be brought to life via a kaleidoscope of colourful light projections and activations, including the biggest drone show in the Southern Hemisphere.

Vivid Sydney is illuminating various locations throughout the city, including Circular Quay, The Rocks, Barangaroo, Darling Harbour, The Goods Line, Central Station and Sydney icons such as the Sydney Opera House, the Sydney Harbour Bridge, the Museum of Contemporary Art and more.

Vivid’s opening event incorporated a celebration of Australia’s original custodians and featured a performance by Yolngu supergroup Yothu Yindi.
