Vivid Sydney, the most-anticipated Sydney festival is back on the Aussie calendar after two years gap. Get ready to enjoy the best Sydney has to offer.

Have you been dreaming of Vivid Sydney like never before? Vivid Sydney Festival is back on the calendar of Aussies after the gap of two years. But unlike the previous seasons, the 12th season is expected to be the best-ever transformation of Sydney so far. And there’s no doubt that the longer the wait, the sweeter and unique the moment when the festival finally arrives. The only question that remains is this: will Vivid Sydney 2022 set the bar higher for the rest of the festivals that happen in Sydney? Here are some reasons to prove it will indeed.

Vivid Lights is one of the major events that happen at the famous Sydney Harbour during the festival, wherein the tall-standing buildings, the majestic Sydney Harbour Bridge, the Opera House, the Customs House and other landmark structures are illuminated to make up a stunning vista that shouldn’t be missed. From the 3D light projections at the Opera House to the harbourside installations, the harbour is one of the prominent Vivid venues in the city and every year it brings amazing Vivid cruise deals. No doubt, a unique and fabulous way of witnessing the whole scene is to get on a premium glass boat Vivid cruise that will take you on an enthralling and visually pleasing journey across the harbour. Embrace the uninterrupted harbour views through its polished floor-to-ceiling glass panes with freshly prepared signature dinner and the finest Aussie drinks that can be purchased from the fully licensed bar onboard. Book your seats and board the premium glass boat Vivid harbour cruise for an unforgettable Vivid Sydney experience ever!

What you need to know is the fact that the Vivid cruises offer a more ambient and sophisticated experience that stays too good to be true. Every year, tens and thousands of people get on board these cruises to catch a good glimpse of the Vivid Lights event. And this year, you can expect to see the best-ever light display as all the lights will be in sync with this year’s artistic direction— The Soul of the City.

Once you’re done exploring Sydney Harbour, head to other parts of the city to see more exciting views. There will be many light shows at Darling Harbour such as Sydney Infinity, The Windspinners, Resonance, and so on. Some other not-to-be-missed art installations at Vivid Sydney 2022 include Wild Lights at Taronga, ChronoHarp at Barangaroo, Point of View at Circular Quay and the Rocks, Gravitational Grid at Darling Square, and so on.

Vivid Ideas 2022 will celebrate the Mavericks & Misfits among us. People who think, speak and shake things up differently will come together to offer more than 50 intriguing talks and workshops that will blatantly address the kinks and quirks of our humanity and initiate conversations around them. You can join the thought-provoking debates and discussions that can solve questions in your mind, seek creative solutions, and can even channel new thought processes. You can join the celebration of Sydney’s LGBTQIA+ community at the Power House Museum. They will share their thoughts on being gay and queer and also will talk about Sydney’s internationally acclaimed response to the HIV/AIDS epidemic. There are many more in Vivid Ideas, that you shouldn’t miss including Troye Sivan’s and Pat Abboud's conversation on Beauty, Art and Fluidity and Aaron Sorkin and Leigh Sales on Drama and Politics, to name a few.

Vivid Music 2021 will reinvigorate Sydney’s music industry with more than 50 live music shows held across various venues offering one-of-a-kind experiences such as Hyde Park Barracks, The Calyx at Royal Botanic Garden, Luna Park, The Parliament House and the Bearded Tit.
