This May will see Australia's largest city bursting with light and life thanks to the annual world-renowned event, Vivid Sydney.

Over 18 days from May 23 to June 9, hundreds of thousands of people from across Australia and around the world will experience Sydney at its best with lighting, music and creative ideas taking centre stage.

Witness everything from the colourful illumination of the Sydney Opera House and Harbour Bridge to unique sculptures and public installations, not to mention an array of musical events.

Between gazing in awe at breathtaking light shows, make sure you get involved with the 'ideas' section of Vivid, consisting of industry conferences, keynote speakers and workshops for all kinds of creatives. Whether you're a writer, artist, actor, advertiser, filmmaker - anything goes, and you'll gain plenty from attending talks and learning from local and international pioneers and trailblazers in all sorts of fields.


"What's the lightest and brightest event making its way to Australia this May and June? Vivid Sydney, of course."


Music lovers will appreciate the chance to catch artists spanning countless genres play in venues across Sydney, from James Vincent McMorrow at the Sydney Opera House to Halfway Crooks at the Basement.

You've never seen Sydney quite so alive, dripping in kaleidoscopic colour, vibrant energy and ideas.

Make sure you're in town for as long as possible to take in the many exciting events that are taking place. With venues all over the city, secure your holiday accommodation in the city centre so you can easily hop between talks, gigs, workshops and shows.

Mantra 2 Bond Street is right in the heart of town, so you can conveniently race around the city from point to point. Enjoy a one-, two- or three-bedroom apartment, or opt for the convenience of an executive studio apartment. Knowing you're in for a comfortable stay, all that's left to do is enjoy the wonders of Vivid Sydney.
