Presented by Vivid Sydney
Vivid Sydney will bring 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.
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.
Vivid Ideas 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.
Vivid Sydney is proud to announce the addition of a new pillar in 2023 – Vivid Food. 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.
