Vivid Sydney 2022- Warming the soul of our city

Lights, music, innovation… action. Sydney is set to transform into a playground of the unexpected. Friday 27th May to Saturday 18th June.

After a tough two years for so many of us, Vivid Sydney ’22 promises to warm the soul of our city with light artists, music makers and brilliant thinkers… sparking our sense of wonder and inspiring us to come out to play as Sydney transforms before our eyes. We're delighted to confirm that International Towers will be joining those buildings adorned in decadent light this year. 

Here’s all you need to know about the dazzling array of Vivid delights on offer around Barangaroo and beyond.

Even more to explore and enjoy on the streets of Barangaroo

The Streets of Barangaroo (2)When Vivid Sydney lights up Barangaroo, it becomes an even bigger feast for your senses and even more of a ‘must-explore’ destination. Take in the artworks at Exchange Square and along Wulugul Walk, then discover why Barangaroo South is Sydney’s go-to dining destination, enjoying delicious, light-inspired fare from over 40 restaurants, bars and cafes and “cheeky tipple spots” – there’s something for everyone in this mouth-watering line-up.




Immerse yourself in the heavenly lights and sounds of ChronoHarp

ChronoharpAdmired for its grandeur, the harp is one of the oldest musical instruments in the world. ChronoHarp – forged by Sydney-based creative collective Amigo & Amigo – interprets and extends the beauty of the harp into a colourful, walk-through sound and light experience.



Discover the delights of the Solar System at Corpi Celesti

44fb510c15a8a9c0737fd54a690add06bc0dadbeCorpi Celesti– or heavenly bodies – is an immersive celebration of the first landing on the moon. In this interactive installation, Italy-based artists Daniele Davino, Daniele Spanò and Luca Brinchi combine the innovative techniques of video mapping and digital lights with traditional techniques of painting and analogue cinema, restoring old films and adapting them into new animated clips.






See the Crowning Glory of our Connected City

Our connected city (1)Our Connected City seeks to connect the city with light. On every day of the year, our city’s buildings stand on their own - with their own colours, structures and identities. During Vivid Sydney this changes, and the connections between the city’s architecture and its people become more profound with a vibrant and colourful lighting design. These spectacular images of Sydney’s icons fill Australians with pride and are projected around the world.


Feel the Soul-Warming Glow of Nura

99eb108423be0750412b8fd886f88e1754fd4cf6This mass installation of 150 colour-changing light pillars at Barangaroo Reserve presents a contemporary imagining of dendroglyphs, designs carved in the bark of living trees. As a collaboration between Indigenous artist Warwick Keen and Mandylights, each pillar is wrapped in a unique First Nations memory. Seen together – in a first for Vivid Sydney – they form an expansive outdoor gallery of illuminated Indigenous art.



Indulge in culinary delights at Crown Sydney


With 11 restaurants and bars featuring spectacular views of Sydney Harbour, Crown Sydney offers a range of fine dining venues, signature restaurants and deluxe bars.
