Vivid Sydney, the largest celebration of light, music and ideas in the Southern Hemisphere, is a grand annual event that happens over three weeks in Sydney. When the festival was cancelled in 2020, it came as a blow to the artist communities from near and far. And today, the city awaits its splendorous return in August 2021. Many local and international artists participate and showcase their art works at this prominent festival, attracting and paving way for art lovers and artists across the globe to this magnificent city. One of the most important venues in the city is Sydney Harbour, where you are most likely to come across the most important light art and projections at the festival. And that’s why we recommend the popular Vivid cruises on Sydney Harbour to experience the festival at its best.
