Vivid Sydney to be ‘biggest ever’

With only three weeks until Vivid Sydney, the countdown to the world’s largest festival of light, music and ideas is on.
And, naturally enough, the extravaganza’s owner and manager – the NSW Government’s tourism and major events agency Destination NSW – is full of a return that it says represents “its biggest and most interactive program ever”.
NSW Minister for Trade, Tourism and Major Events Stuart Ayres said, “Sydney’s streets will be filled with colour as visitors from across the globe celebrate Vivid Sydney, our world-renowned festival of light, music and ideas.”
“Vivid Sydney is firmly established as a must-see global event, attracting 1.43 million attendees and adding $41 million to our State’s visitor economy in 2014.
“This year’s festival continues to expand and attract the world’s leading artists and creatives, adding to an already impressive program. With 60 light installations, new precincts to explore, more ideas seminars and an expanded music offering, there’s something new to see every night during Vivid Sydney and I encourage everyone to start planning their trip.”
Destination NSW Chief Executive Officer Sandra Chipchase said, “Illuminated by our spectacular Vivid Sydney festival, Sydney truly comes alive during winter. As Vivid Sydney expands, sending its creative energy across the city, it’s the perfect time to explore and discover Sydney’s wonderful restaurants, small bars and fantastic shopping. In fact there’s so much to see and do, I encourage everyone to plan an extended break in the harbour city.”
Vivid Sydney runs for 18 nights from 22 May to 8 June.
