Vivid Sydney 2021

Vivid Sydney is one of the best Australia events, and this next year aims to be the biggest Vivid Sydney festival yet. This is a goal that is likely to be achieved, as the annual event has only grown in size and popularity since it was first introduced. The Sydney Opera House has always been at the heart of things since the start, though Vivid Sydney is very much a citywide celebration when it comes down to it.

First held in 2009, Vivid Sydney hasn’t taken long to become a major Sydney event. Originally a light show that was based around the Sydney Opera House, the annual celebration has grown to include more than just spectacular light displays. Side events come in the form of concerts, industry parties, and trade shows, among other things. There are also separate light shows all through Circular Quay, The Rocks, and the harbor area in general. The Light Show at the Sydney Opera House is still the main light show. It sees the sails of the world-famous entertainment venue being illuminated with spectacular light displays. The Vivid Sydney light displays generally begin around 6 pm and continue up until midnight.

Vivid Sydney is a festival that offers something for a wide variety of people. There are opportunities to exchange ideas about technology, for example, and the music performances that are held at various venues around town certainly cover a range of interests. There are even special shows for kids, and a number of specialty shopping stalls spring up around the harbor.

The Sydney Opera House plays host to many of the Vivid Sydney events. Other event venues include the Sydney Convention & Exhibition Centre, the Doltone House, and the AMP Building. Sydney hotels like the Hilton Sydney and the Sydney Harbour Marriott are also known to host Vivid Sydney events, and it should be noted that many of the events that relate to the grand festival are free. As for the Vivid Sydney schedule, the festival runs for two weeks between late May and mid-June.
