Following last year’s unforgettable iteration, Vivid Sydney is back with a bang in 2024.

Renowned as the Southern Hemisphere’s most expansive multi-artform festival, it’s once again set to illuminate the harbour city from May 24th to June 15th with four foundational pillars: Vivid Light, Vivid Music, Vivid Ideas, and Vivid Food.

Across 23 nights, attendees are invited to explore a world where light installations, music performances, thought-provoking discussions, and culinary delights converge.

Vivid Ideas entices festival-goers to immerse themselves in a realm of curiosity and innovation, offering experiences that range from nightly current affairs discussions to immersive dance and art installations.

“Humanity is at the core of everything we do, and this year Vivid Sydney is diving deep into what makes us uniquely human,” said Vivid Sydney Festival Director Gill Minervini.

“We have curated a diverse program that explores the human spirit, designed to foster connections, spark imagination and showcase the multitude of ways creativity enriches our lives. Everyone is invited to be part of this global event in the world’s most beautiful city to connect, create, and celebrate.”
