Vivid Festival

Vivid Festival

This three-week celebration of ‘lights, music, and ideas aims to give locals (and visitors) a visual boost with an array of harbor-side light installations, the most spectacular being the lighting of the Sydney Opera House sails with colorful patterns. There are also heaps of fantastic musical performances on offer—last year alone saw Pixies, St. Vincent, Ms Lauryn Hill, and Giorgio Moroder swing through for shows.
