Vivid Sydney, launched in 2009, has grown into a world-renowned festival of light, music, and ideas, transforming the city into a vibrant creative canvas. Each year, millions of visitors are drawn to its breathtaking light installations and projections, live music performances, and thought-provoking discussions, especially right here in our backyard at Cockle Bay Wharf and throughout Darling Harbour.

This year, you can expect to be captivated by Hika Rakuyo, a stunning light and laser show inspired by Japanese concepts of transience. Watch as native Australian flowers bloom across the night sky in a mesmerising 8-minute holographic display.
