[Worldkings] Top 50 annual creative events in the world (P. 13) Vivid Sydney (Australia): Immersing in the colorful festival of lights in Sydney's bustling city


(Worldkings.org) Vivid Sydney is an annual celebration of creativity, innovation and technology, which transforms Sydney for 23 days and nights. Vivid Sydney fused art, innovation and technology in collaboration with some of the most boundary-pushing artists, thinkers and musicians of our time.

Vivid Sydney is a unique annual event of light, music and ideas, featuring many of the world's most important creative industry forums, a mesmerising free public exhibition of outdoor lighting sculptures, a cutting edge contemporary music program and the spectacular illumination of the Sydney Opera House sails.


In an urban playground infused with natural beauty, Vivid Sydney brings together the world’s brightest light artists, music makers, thought leaders and, for the first time, food creatives for Australia’s biggest festival.

Vivid Sydney is known for its spectacular light projections and art installations which create a vibrant kaleidoscope of colour across the city. Glowing light art and vibrant 3D projections transformed the city’s iconic architecture and lesser known spaces including Sydney’s CBD, Circular Quay, The Rocks, Walsh Bay, Barangaroo, Darling Harbour, Darling Square, Darling Quarter, The Goods Line and Central Station. Especially, in 2022, Vivid Sydney boasted the longest continuous light walk ever, running uninterrupted from Sydney Opera House to Central Station.


All of Sydney is a stage for the Vivid Music program, a curated selection of free and ticketed events designed to excite, with diverse artists performing live shows in unexpected spaces across the city. The city is dotted with free music events for visitors of all ages and musical tastes, while ticketed gigs boast lineups of renowned local and international artists.

In 2022, Vivid Music highlights included late-night cabaret at the Vivid Sydney Supper Club at Mary’s Underground, the world premiere of ‘The Gospel According to Marcia’ with Marcia Hines, and international acts Spiritualized, Baxter Dury and Cakes Da Killa.


In addition, Vivid Ideas, a part of Vivid Sydney, brings together the world’s brightest minds and fearless global storytellers, exploring the forces that shape not only Sydney’s unique society, but all great cities around the world. The program offers a stacked line-up of thought-provoking talks, workshops and deep-dive discussions that jump to the heart of the matter, seek creative solutions and inspire new ways of thinking. 


Besides, food is an integral part of our culture and the perfect complement to the dynamic program of Light, Music and Ideas. As the culinary capital of Australia, Sydney is spoiled with world-class hatted chefs, restaurants, producers and venues dishing up an incredibly diverse range of cuisines. From streetside suppers to Harbour banquets showcasing the finest local produce, Vivid Food is all about celebrating those who make the city's food scene so special.
