If you want to see more of Vivid Sydney over multiple nights, it can help to carve up the festival fun by its many locations.  

Here are some of the highlights in and around Town Hall from Festival Director Gill Minervini and the Festival Curators. 

Bee line to the Australian Museum for more mavericks and their Vivid Ideas. Find out what it takes to stop people Falling Through the Cracks (8 June), explore our obsession with wellness in Wellmania with The Guardian’s Brigid Delaney and provocateur Benjamin Law (9 June), tap into Sydney’s creative pulse at Soul of the City (15 June), and find out how dating, sex and intimacy are changing fast at Modern Love (16 June).

The Metro is your mid-town destination to see UK musical raconteur Baxter Dury bring his indie croon-come-disco swagger to the stage (4 June).   

Head across to Darling Quarter to find Halo and Resonance en route to Tumbalong Park’s Windspinners and Checkmate light installations and stop in to the House of Bombay Bar for a cheeky cocktail or something refreshing before exploring the wonders of walk-through sonic paintings at Vivid House.    

See you in the mix! Remember to share all your #vividsydney reflections and connections on our socials.
