Sydney’s biggest winter festival, Vivid, starts on 25 May and runs until 16 June, 2018. The festival started in Sydney CBD but has since also lit up the surrounding suburbs.
If you’ve been to Sydney’s Vivid Festival you will know there is a lot of walking involved. Many roads will be closed off in the city so the best way to get around to see the sights and sounds is by foot. But we’re not complaining - what a great opportunity to take in the beautiful view of the harbour whilst keeping up with the VIVRA movement! Whether you live in Sydney or are visiting from interstate or overseas, make sure that you’re prepared for a few things.
Firstly, it gets cold (well, cold for us Aussies anyway)! The festival was created to entice people out of their homes during the cold Sydney winter so don’t forget to bring a warm jacket. The next thing you should also be prepared for are the crowds! Vivid Sydney attracts thousands of tourists, both interstate and overseas, as well as local Sydneysiders. The 2018 instalment of the popular Sydney festival is even attracting international attention, with hip hop singer Solange gracing our shores. Her sold out shows at the Opera House are guaranteed to draw big crowds for those hoping to catch a glimpse of Beyonce’s little sister!
The festival is all about three things; light, music and ideas. For over three weeks, the city will be home to hundreds of beautiful light shows and installations that turn on at sunset. It's amazing to know thousands of tourists will admire the work of our homegrown artists. These beautiful installations turn on at night so plan your days for the locations you want to see most. There are plenty of volunteers and guides to direct you around the city too, so you won’t get lost!
Musical performances throughout the city at key venues, and Idea sessions will be available for those curious minds.
Vivid has become an important event for Sydney and we’re so excited to share with you some festival looks that we are planning for the big night time walks to each location! Remember it can become a long and tiring evening walking from location to location amongst the crowd, so the less you carry, the better off you’ll be. That’s where the VIVRA pouch comes in - the perfect hands-free, and RFID-safe accessory to keep your essentials (yep, the XL pouch will keep your passport and cards safe from potential hacking scammers and will also fit your giant phone!)
