Vivid Sydney 2020: the biggest light festival in the Southern Hemisphere

Now in its twelfth year, Vivid Sydney is returning to shine a spotlight on the city between 22 May and 13 June 2020. A festival of light, music, and ideas, it's also an annual celebration of Sydney and its role as a creative hub in the Asia-Pacific region.

So, if you're considering a trip to New South Wales, tie it in with the festival to ensure an experience to remember.

We've selected our highlights below, but for the full story click 'read more' below.

Awe-inspiring light displays

The large-scale light shows are a huge part of what this festival is all about, and no matter where you go in Sydney during Vivid, you're bound to see some pretty spectacular special effects. At 6pm each night, installations at some of the city's most iconic landmarks – think the Sydney Opera House, Circular Quay, the Royal Botanic Garden and The Rocks precinct – transform the streets into a colourful wonderland. 

Cutting-edge music

Performances from local and international acts bring another dimension to the festival, hosted at various venues around the city. If you're a music fan, you can see everything from high-energy dance music acts to live jazz, at venues as diverse as the Sydney Opera House and the heritage-listed, former-railyard Carriageworks.

Knowledge and inspiration

Enrichment is an important focus for Vivid Sydney and there are a host of talks, seminars and debates for anyone to attend, covering a range of topics and ideas.
