Time Out Sydney

Brighten your winter with Sydney's annual festival of light, music, performance and talks 

Vivid Sydney is an annual city-wide festival featuring a live music component at Sydney Opera House, a talks and ideas program at the Museum of Contemporary Art, and an outdoor light festival around the harbour foreshore. It’s the largest winter festival in the Southern Hemisphere, and the 18-day event attracted more than 1.43 million people in 2014. In its seventh year the festival will include free art and light installations, live music performances as part of Vivid Live and a host of ticketed seminars, discussions and workshops as part of Vivid Ideas. The full program for Vivid Sydney 2015 will be announced in the new year.
