Vivid Sydney extends in 2016
The success of Vivid Sydney over the past seven years has led to the recent announcement that the festival of light, music and ideas will run for an additional five nights in 2016, running from May 27 to June 18, a total of 23 nights. Last year Vivid attracted a record 1.7 million people, with more than 112,000 international and domestic overnight visitors travelling specifically to NSW to enjoy the spectacle. Destination NSW Chief Executive Officer and Executive Producer of Vivid Sydney, Sandra Chipchase, said expanding the festival in 2016 will give visitors more time to experience the spectacular light, music and ideas that illuminate the Harbour City each winter. This year the festival will expand to include sites in Taronga Zoo as well, with installations including a trail of giant, luminous animals sculptures.
