Luminous sculptures, dazzling views and glowing skyscrapers – the spectacle that is Vivid Sydney is back. The world’s largest festival of lights, music and ideas is set to return this May 24 - June 15 and there’s no shortage of Insta-worthy opportunities on the horizon!

So, grab your bestie, family or team and get ready to revel in our top five ‘must-do’ experiences at Vivid Sydney 2019:

1.    Lighting of the Sails – Austral Floral Ballet

LA-based artist, Andrew Thomas Huang, known for producing Bjork’s alternative music videos, is this year’s visual maestro who will adorn the Opera House with the striking colours of Australia’s native flora. Huang’s Austral Floral Ballet blends contemporary dance with motion-capture technology to bring our floral emblems to life in a spellbinding performance.

2.    FKA Twigs at Carriageworks

Genre-bending singer, songwriter and dancer, FKA Twigs, who has collaborated with the likes of A$AP Rocky and Sampha, draws influences from electronic and industrial sounds to create her own brand of atmospheric pop. Combined with her angelic voice and avant-garde choreography, this promises to be a show to remember.

3.    Esther Perel on Modern Love and the Digital Age

Renowned relationship therapist and best-selling author, Esther Perel, visits Australia for the first time as part of the Vivid Ideas Game Changer Series. Esther will dive into the world of modern love, discussing online dating and the challenges associated with staying present in today’s digital society.

 Spanning The Rocks to Circular Quay and into The Royal Botanic Garden, the Vivid Light Walk offers up a shimmering trail of interactive light installations. Don’t miss the ethereal Ballerina as she pirouettes along the harbour’s edge!

5.    Vivid Bridge Climb

There’s no better vantage point to take in the awesomeness of Vivid than the summit of the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge.

Experience breathtaking 360-degree views of Sydney and bust a move to your favourite tunes on an illuminated dance floor perched 134 metres above the Harbour, on our unforgettable Vivid Climb.
