City of Sydney

The City works closely with Destination NSW to support events and festivals that attract millions of local, interstate and international visitors each year. World-class events of this type ensure that Sydney remains a globally-competitive and innovative city with a thriving creative culture.

To support the significant year-on-year growth of Vivid Sydney, for the third year, the City is helping bring to life a Vivid Music program – X|CELERATE. Designed to increase investment in the local industry, X|CELERATE spotlights the bars and creative spaces that keep Sydney’s music scene unique, eclectic and thriving all year round, with a series of special programs custom-curated for the festival.  

In addition, the City will continue to provide other services and support to help make Vivid Sydney such a spectacular success. This includes extending the hours of our visitor information kiosks, providing iconic Sydney venues and landmark spaces for activation, and ensuring an extensive cleaning and waste management program keeps the streets at their sparkling best.
