Sydney, March 21, 2017

The annual Vivid Sydney festival will happen at Sydney’s new harbourside CBD precinct of Barangaroo for the first time this year, bringing back its iconic light displays and featuring a robust music lineup including UK electronic dance outfit Goldfrapp.


Vivid Sydney will illuminate the city for 23 nights with festival favourites such as the Vivid Light Walk as well as displays at Chatswood, Martin Place, Darling Harbour, Taronga Zoo, plus an expanded trail through the Royal Botanic Garden Sydney.

The New South Wales minister for tourism and major events, Adam Marshall, said: “The sails of the Sydney Opera House will again be illuminated, this year with a spectacular projection of imaginary creatures inspired by insects, plants and the ocean underworld, that will captivate locals and visitors from around the world.”


Apart from Goldfrapp, Vivid Sydney will present acts such as folk-rock group Fleet Foxes, indie-rock band Dappled Cities, Grammy Award-winning jazz singer Dianne Reeves, plus the Ideas programme headlined by American contemporary artist Shepard Fairey.


The festival returns this year from May 26 to June 17.
