Prepare to stand back in awe as Sydney shows off its very best side, proving definitively that our city knows how to celebrate both rigorously and responsibly.

Vivid Sydney has just announced the full set of dates for its 2016 run. This year, the festival of lights, music and ideas, will run for a bumper 23 nights – its longest stretch yet.

Last year the event attracted over 1.7 million attendees, so it’s safe to say the festival is swelling in popularity. No new names have been announced as musical guests yet, but the revelation last week that Anohni will be one of the stars bodes very well for things to come. Keep your ear to the ground.

Vivid Sydney 2016 will run from Friday May 27 to Saturday June 18. More information is available at the Vivid website, here.
