Planning your Vivid Sydney experience

As a centrepiece of Vivid Sydney – the world’s largest festival of light, music and ideas – Sydney Opera House is home to the stunning Lighting the Sails, which this year features Ash Bolland’s ‘Audio Creatures’ on the outside, and the Vivid LIVE contemporary music program inside. 

Vivid Sydney will run from 26 May – 17 June featuring more than 90 installations and events across 12 precincts, including the Opera House and the nearby Royal Botanic Gardens. Lights will be switched on each day from 6pm until 11pm.

Not only a popular vantage point for the city and harbour lights, the Opera House is also a place for visitors to explore festival-themed food and beverage experiences across the site’s many eateries and bars, including the pop-up ‘Soft Future Piano Bar’ presented by Goodgod.
