2022 Vivid Festival Sydney

Sydney Harbour Bridge and Opera House lit up for the Vivid Festival in Sydney!

The countdown begins as the Vivid Sydney Festival prepares to bare the soul of our city through creativity, curiosity and change. For 23 days, the festival will connect our city to light artists, music makers, brilliant thinkers and all creatives. Seek change. Spark a new idea. Shine with Vivid Sydney.

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. From 27th of May – 18th of June 2022, Vivid Sydney will tell stories of the harbour city beyond the icons, about urban legends, secret spaces and visions for the future.

The annual festival sparks a sense of wonder that resonates around the world, with incredible 3D light projections, cross-art form installations, exhilarating live music and deep-dive discussions. The 2022 festival boasts the longest continuous Light Walk in the history of the event, from Sydney Opera House to Central Station. Once again, the Sydney Opera House will be aglow for the Lighting of the Sails, and at a new Light Walk addition, Central Station, the George Street façade will boast an interactive projection.
