Vehicle Access Parking Request

Destination NSW aims to minimise the impact of Vivid Sydney 2024 on local residents, businesses and the non-event community by providing complimentary vehicle access passes (VAPs). 

Your VAP bookings must be made in advance to ensure we can manage traffic. 

Vivid Sydney will take place from 24 May – 15 June 2024, with Lights On from 6pm to 11pm each night. We encourage you to familiarise yourself with the road closures and plan your movements ahead of time. The Vivid Sydney Road Closure flyer will be available for download in March 2024.

If you require a VAP for Vivid Sydney 2024, please take a moment to read the terms & conditions provided below and Destination NSW’s Privacy Policy and Terms of Use. You can opt out anytime following the instructions in the Privacy Policy. 

Once your form is submitted, a Vivid Sydney representative will contact you by email to confirm the booking and advise further details. Your vehicle access pass will be provided up to 3-4 prior to the festival. 

If you have specific requirements, please feel free to contact our Vivid Sydney team at or (02) 9931 1190.
