Vivid Sydney 2022

Vivid Sydney is an annual festival that sparks the soul of our city with creative brilliance for 23 days and nights from Friday 27 May until Saturday 18 June 2022. Celebrating its 12th year in 2022, Vivid Sydney fuses art, innovation and technology in collaboration with some of the most boundary-pushing artists, thinkers and musicians of our time.

Vivid Sydney tells a story of the harbour city beyond the icons, about urban legends, secret spaces and visions for the future. The 2022 festival boasts the longest continuous Light Walk in the history of the event, from Sydney Opera House to Central Station.
