destination NSWThe opening night of Vivid coincides with AFL and Super Rugby matches at the SCG and Allianz Stadium, as well as a concert at the Hordern Pavilion, with up to 65,000 people expected in the Moore Park precinct.

 

Minister for Trade, Tourism and Major Events Stuart Ayres said this year’s Vivid is set to be the biggest in the festival’s eight-year history.

 

“We are delighted Vivid Sydney is finally here again! It’s one of Australia’s must-see festivals that is now recognised as the largest event of its kind in the world combining light, music and ideas,” Mr Ayres said.

 

“Last year a record 1.7 million attendees experienced the joy of Vivid Sydney, and this year the festival will run for an additional five nights, providing visitors with even more time to experience the spectacular light, music and ideas that illuminate the Harbour City each winter.”

 

Additional public transport services will be in place throughout Vivid Sydney to move people around, however the CBD and surrounding Moore Park area will be congested from the early afternoon on Friday with major delays expected.

 

Minister for Transport and Infrastructure Andrew Constance said visitors coming into or near the CBD on Friday night should leave the car at home, with more than 60,000 fans expected to attend the two football games at Moore Park.

 

“We want fans and visitors to enjoy these fantastic events but everyone needs to plan ahead as there will be road closures and clearways, and we expect there will be significant delays on our roads,” Mr Constance said.

 

“If you’re coming into town, use the 4,500 extra public transport services running in addition to the regular timetable during Vivid Sydney.”
