The countdown to Vivid Sydney 2023 officially kicks off May 26. Celebrating creativity, innovation and technology, Australia’s largest festival dazzles and delights audiences for 23 days and nights across four different categories: Vivid Light, Vivid Music, Vivid Ideas and the brand-new Vivid Food.
This year, the festival embraces the phrase, Vivid Sydney, Naturally, inspired by connections to the natural environment. This motto comes to life via a kaleidoscope of colorful light projections and activations with free and ticketed events. Gill Minervini, director, Vivid Sydney Festival, hopes the festival will raise the bar even higher than past events with once-in-a-lifetime experiences.
“We are proud to have curated an impressive collection of local and international artists, and food creatives, to provide Vivid Sydney audiences with new and exciting experiences,” said Minervini. “We have expanded and evolved the festival further this year and have curated an amazing line-up for 2023. The festival offering includes some significant new and Vivid-first experiences, as well as Vivid Food, to deliver world-class culinary talent, events and activations as part of the program.”
Some highlights of this year’s festival include:
- Vivid Sydney Light Walk, featuring more than 49 light installations and 3-D projections along an illuminated walk
- Lightscape, the internationally acclaimed, multisensory experience of light, color and sounds, transforming The Royal Botanic Garden Sydney for the first time
- Vivid Food (new this year), activates across venues in Sydney’s CBD showcasing a variety of creativity, innovation and culinary experiences, from pop-up restaurants to high-end cuisine celebrating the city’s diverse food culture
The complete program for Vivid Sydney 2023 will be released in mid-March. Stay updated here.

Elk Cove Inn & Spa Review
Mendocino County is a self-contained universe of effortless, California-centric joy enveloped within the Redwood Forest National and State Parks, the rocky Pacific Coast and several prime wine production areas like Anderson Valley. If Highway 1 and Route 128 are the ribbons holding this package together, Elk Cove Inn & Spa can be considered the bow. Mendocino Coast’s first vacation destination, established in 1968, is an ideal 16-room gateway to the destination.
