From May to mid-June, this festival celebrates the world’s most forward-thinking artists, musicians, and professionals. The event is broken down into three platforms. The Vivid Light show “turns on” every night at 6 PM and transforms Sydney
into a kaleidoscope of large-scale light sculptures and projections onto the Opera House and Harbour Bridge. Vivid Music lines up incredible concerts from musicians from all over the globe, and Vivid Ideas unites innovative thinkers at events across the city. The light displays are free, but book a cruise—or BridgeClimb
—to experience them in all their glory. Pack your sunnies.
