Vivid Sydney is an annual festival that celebrated its 12th year in 2022, Vivid Sydney fuses art, innovation and technology and features a set of light installations scattered around the city.
Vivid returns to Sydney in 2022 after a hiatus of two years due to COVID-19 restrictions. Vivid Sydney will be on from Friday 27 May until Saturday 18 June, from 6pm – 11pm.
There are over 64 installations stretching from the Sydney Opera House across Circular Quay, the Rocks, Walsh Bay, Barangaroo and ending at Central Station. In addition there are a number of isolated installations at places such as Taronga Zoo and Carriageworks.
The following images were captured on opening night:
2022 will see both sides of Sydney Harbour Bridge emblazoned with hundreds of colour changing lights. In a ribbon of light, colours pulse from the northern end of the Sydney Harbour Bridge across its world-famous span, through The Rocks, around Circular Quay and onto the Sydney Opera House forecourt.
