Vivid Sydney is transforming The Rocks with light, music and ideas.

24 May to 15 June
The Rocks, NSW, 2000

Vivid Sydney is transforming The Rocks with light, music and ideas. The festival that dazzles Sydney is back for its eleventh year for 23 days and nights. From Friday 24 May to Saturday 15 June, Vivid Sydney will turn the city into a gigantic outdoor art gallery, alive with colourful light design.

Right at the heart of the action is The Rocks. Here, you can discover playful, thought-provoking installations along the Vivid Light Walk, witness the spectacular lighting of the Opera House sails, or immerse yourself in invigorating talks at the Museum of Contemporary Art (MCA).

Take time out for refreshments in one of The Rocks’ renowned cafes, restaurants or bars. Then, shop under the stars for eclectic, speciality wares at The Rocks Night Markets.

It’s a joyous extravaganza—the biggest of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere. Gaze upon large-scale light installations and projections. Hear performances by some of the best musicians in Australia and the world. Sink your teeth into a smorgasbord of creative ideas, discussion and debate. Visit Vivid Sydney for more details.
