Become a Vivid Sydney Volunteer!

Help bring one of the world’s largest festivals to life

Vivid Sydney is an annual celebration of creativity, innovation and technology, transforming Sydney for 23 days and nights. In 2024, for its 14th year, Vivid Sydney will fuse art, innovation and technology in collaboration with some of the most boundary pushing artists, thinkers, musicians and culinary experts of our time to explore the theme of “humanity”.




City wide Volunteers

You’ll provide valuable information for our audiences at information booths around the city, in roaming teams within key locations and at some of our Vivid Light installations. As a volunteer, you will be in the heart of the action, get an exclusive behind-the-scenes peek into the inner workings of an iconic festival and connect with the local community.

You will share information with people about the event, accessible viewing areas, public facilities, transport, amenities and general directions.

Volunteer dates and times

Pre-event information booths – 22 May - 24 May 2024

Shifts around 5 hours are available in the morning and afternoon at Circular Quay information booths.

Vivid Sydney – 24 May - 15 June 2024

Various shifts between 5pm-11pm are available each evening at the information booths, as part of a roving team or as an installation assistant.
