Aiden Darling Harbour

Vivid Sydney

Be illuminated by art installations, light projections and performances.

from 24/05/2024 to 15/06/2024

The world-famous festival of light, music and ideas, Vivid Sydney returns in 2024 to illuminate the city with large-scale light installations and projections, free family events, cutting-edge music performances and thought-provoking ideas talks, workshops and conferences.

Darling Harbour is one of the main hubs of activity, transformed each night with art installations and 3D projections across the cityscape and harbour. Find wondrous innovations like Neolithic, motion-trigger marvels at Neuron and admire the spectacular laser projections celebrating Hika Rakuyo, a Japanese concept that uses flowers and falling leaves as a metaphor for the transient beauty of life. Be sure to check out the incredible light show at Cockle Bay, along with the sights at Tumbalong Park buzzing with live music and various children’s entertainment.
