Get More Of What You Love In The Biggest-Ever Vivid Music Program

Vivid Sydney is back for another HUGE year - become inspired, get in the moment and take in every second on offer as each element of Vivid Sydney from the lights, to the music, to the ideas is always one for the books.

This year they're bringing more of what you love with an epic line-up between 26 May - 17 June. When we say 'more of what you love', we mean they've revealed more than 400 events as part of the biggest-ever Vivid Music program.

We thought it'd be a great idea to take you through our top picks for the Vivid Music program which celebrates the diversity and creativity of the local Sydney music scene!

Without further ado....


Music NSW & FBi Radio are bringing you a showcase of the best in the biz, the super talented ladies who are kickin' ass and takin' names. Party late into the night with pioneering producers, beat-makers, DJs, hosted by Sydney's one and only FlexMami and featuring UNIQU3, Linda Marigliano, Miss Banks, Andy Garvey, Mookhi & more!

Let music and light immerse you across two incredible nights, when light and set designers Underground Arts will 'paint' an entire venue, using light as their brushes while music from Cosmo's Midnight or Roland Tings washes over you. These are going to be two cool AF nights so grab your tickets now and we'll see you there.
