Vivid Sydney 2015, the largest light, music and ideas event in the Southern Hemisphere, is set to impress once again when it returns to Sydney in 2015. The 18 day event, named Best Tourism Event at the Australian Event Awards in 2014, is on from 22 May to 8 June in 2015, which is also the International Year of Light. Owned and managed by Destination New South Wales, the State Government’s Tourism and Major Events agency, Vivid Sydney attracted more than 1.43 million people in 2014.

Destination NSW CEO Sandra Chipchase said, “Vivid Sydney 2015 dazzles visitors with its creative and entertaining line-up of performances, light displays and installations. As it continues to become more popular every year, I encourage visitors to start planning their trips to Vivid Sydney now.” Heading into its seventh year, Vivid Sydney celebrates the creative industries. Much of the festival is free and includes large scale light installations and projections as part of Vivid Light; music performances and collaborations as part of Vivid Music; and creative ideas, discussion and debate as part of Vivid Ideas.

Vivid Light expanded into more precincts than ever before in 2014, taking the event to a new level. For the first time in 2014, the harbour joined in with Harbour Lights lighting up ferries and vessels, the new CBD precinct Martin Place impressed audiences with giant light installations, and new Vivid programming at Carriageworks, the Seymour Centre, Sydney University and The Basement provided ongoing enjoyment for festival goers.

Long-term favourites including the Lighting the Sails of the Sydney Opera House, the sandstone facades of Customs House and the Museum of Contemporary Art, the lighting of the Sydney Harbour Bridge, Darling Harbour and the foreshore running from East Circular Quay right around to Campbell’s Cove and Walsh Bay once again hypnotised audiences with their impressive light projections and installations.
