Where will your night take you at Vivid Sydney? The possibilities are endless.

This year, we're celebrating everything that makes us different (and the same). The theme 'Humanity,' invites us to look inside to find inspiration in all those things that make us uniquely human - love, kindness, compassion and creativity.

Join us in The Rocks to wander among out-of-this-world creations, marvel the sky as it lights up with the Love Is In The Air drone show, or sit down for a feast from the heart. Reconnect with friends old and new as you stroll through The Rocks Markets and settle down for a warm Night Picnic at Dawes Point Park which offers some of Sydney's best views of the dazzling Opera House. There's also a diverse program of free live music to enjoy. And if you're looking to expand your social network, book in for one of our fun social events hosted by Conscious Connection.

The Rocks Markets

Experience The Rocks Markets after dark during Vivid Sydney. Wander the historic laneways as they come aglow with luminous lights, shop local artisan wares and savour a curated selection of delicious eats from our market stalls. Pick up your favourite goodies and enjoy a delectable night picnic under the harbour bridge. Let the vibrant energy of live music wash over you, creating the perfect backdrop for an unforgettable evening under the Sydney sky. 

Night Picnic Under the Bridge

Enjoy a unique and memorable Night Picnic at Dawes Point Park. It's the perfect spot to sit back and relax, with a delicious array of food and drinks from the Markets whilst enjoying the sparkling lights across the harbour. 

Free Live Music

See electrifying DJs or dance to soul and funk in The Rocks Square and Bay 5 on 1 Hickson Road, Friday to Sunday nights. You can also enjoy live Jazz Sessions on Thursdays during Vivid Sydney.

Love Is In The Air Drone Show

What the world needs now is love, sweet love... and at Vivid Sydney all you need to do is look to the sky to find it. Join us at Circular Quay to see the sky dazzle with over 700 drones. Saturday 8, Sunday 9 and Saturday 15 June. Time to be announced.

Conscious Connection Games Nights

Embrace the essence of this year's theme 'Humanity,' by meeting like minded people at a games night hosted by Conscious Connection. Three events have now sold out, so get your tickets quick for the final event at The Glenmore on Wednesday June 12.
