Winter’s biggest festival returns in 2021 with a thrilling display of light, colour and conversations

The world’s largest festival of light, music and ideas had to go on a little hiatus in 2020, but it's finally announced dates for its return in August of 2021. Free illuminations will again light up the city, as well as strange and exciting public artworks, outdoor performances and workshops covering the city's biggest ideas.

From August 6 to 28 of 2021, the city will set off outdoors on winter evenings, rugged up and ready to challenge their minds and senses. While we don't have the full details on the line-up yet, we know it's going to involve a whole lot of light, colour and sound, with the program being split up into three categories: Vivid Light (installations), Vivid Music (live performances) and Vivid Ideas (talks and conferences). The awe-inspiring Light Walk will stretch along the Sydney Harbour foreshore as usual and light up gorgeous corners of the city including the Rocks and the Royal Botanic Garden. Vivid LIVE will be back on again, showcasing grassroots and local talent at the Sydney Opera House as well as venues across the city.

It's also set to provide a big boost to NSW’s economy, with the event attracting more than two million visitors to Sydney in its last iteration.

We'll keep you updated as we learn more about the program. Find out the latest on the Vivid website.
