Is it a good idea to go to Vivid tonight?

Emma Joyce

You may have noticed that it’s a little wetter than usual. The entire New South Wales coast is on flood alert, wind speeds of 90-100 kilometres per hour have been recorded in Sydney, people have been evacuated from homes in Narrabeen and Lismore, and transport has been affected in the CBD. So, no. We would say it’s not a great idea to head out for Vivid’s light projections tonight. 

Vivid Sydney is urging visitors to postpone their trips to another, drier day. The festival runs until June 18 – so there’s plenty of time. 

Light projections on the Sydney Opera House, Harbour Bridge, Customs House, and at Central Park and Chatswood will still be operating tonight. However, light projections and artworks at Taronga Zoo, Martin Place, Darling Harbour, the Royal Botanic Garden Sydney and the majority of lighting installations around Circular Quay, the Rocks and Walsh Bay will not..

You can still check out indoor exhibitions like Bjork Digital at Carriageworks, Vivid Ideas sessions and Vivid Music events.
