About Vivid LIVE
Vivid LIVE is the annual centrepiece of the Opera House’s year-round Contemporary Music program. In 2022, Vivid LIVE will feature Australian premieres, one-off projects and unmissable performances from original Australian artists alongside select top global acts, emerging voices and Sydney’s vibrant local communities who reflect the city’s inimitable contemporary culture.
This year, Vivid LIVE invites music lovers to return to the world-class venue for a transformative night of live contemporary music as it reignites the city.
Vivid LIVE is part of Vivid Sydney, the annual celebration of creativity, innovation and technology, which transforms Sydney for 23 days and nights.
It is the only time of the year that the Opera House dedicates a majority of it’s spaces and venues to one singular art form - from its theatres, rehearsal spaces, foyers, studio, outdoor stages and, most publicly, its iconic sails.
The Lighting of the Sails is co-curated by the Sydney Opera House and Destination NSW and is both Vivid Sydney and the Opera House’s most significant free event.
