Vivid 2017 Will Be The BIGGEST EVER!

"Think of it as Wonderland!"

Vivid 2017 Will Be The BIGGEST EVER!

The world's largest festival of light, music and ideas is back! 

2017's Vivid Festival will be the biggest year yet, but... wait a minute, there's no theme!

Instead, the festival's creative director wants you to think of it as a wonderland. Ignatius Jones says Vivid has MANY different themes - in fact, there will be over 260 events over the 23 nights.

"It's a little bit like Alice fell down that rabbit hole, and suddenly she came out and she didn't know where to look! At every corner there's something new and something pretty mad that you weren't expecting."

Imaginary creatures will come alive on the sails of Sydney Harbour Bridge, showing them interacting with the environment as they morph and move. 

Barangaroo will also be included in Vivid for the first time, and Taronga Zoo will be part of it again this year with interactive sharks as part of its popular Lights for the Wild show.

Anyone who goes for a stroll through the Royal Botanic Gardens during Vivid will be confronted by a giant set of eyes, that follow you around!

CREEPY: The Light Walk includes EYES that stare at you wherever you go!
