Vivid 2022 – Sydney

Vivid is back in Sydney – and it’s bigger and better than ever before! After a two year break, we cannot wait to see Sydney come to life again through live canvases of light, music performances and deep-dive discussions.

Vivid Sydney is held over 23 nights from Friday 27th May to Saturday 18th June. With several locations such as Barangaroo, Central Station, Circular Quay and The Rocks, Darling Harbour, Luna Park, Sydney CBD and Surrounds, Taronga Zoo and Walsh Bay; this event is not one to miss! 

Bring your family and friends and explore what defines the character of this beautiful city. Let your imagination run wild as the Harbour city is painted in the colour and spectacle of Vivid Light.

Make your way to the Sydney stages for Vivid’s performances and collaborations. Watch musicians transform the city performing live shows in unexpected spaces. Chill out in a bar and listen to some tunes or, support a band in a venue. There are lots to discover at Vivid Sydney that will make your soul sing.

The 2022 line-up is bigger than ever. In the history of the event, you will find the longest continuous Light Walk – a laser-lit tunnel stretching eight kilometres from Central Station all the way to the Sydney Opera House, and even an appearance from Australian icon Paul Kelly! Wow, what a comeback!

It is time to get inspired and learn more about our people and our city. So plan your trip and make the most of this festive season. You will be creating bright memories for you and the whole family.
