Postpone Your Trip To ‘Vivid Sydney’ – Festival Impacted By Extreme Weather Conditions On Sunday the 5th of June

Due to the continuing extreme weather conditions including heavy rain, flash flooding & high winds that are currently impacting Sydney, visitors are once again being urged to postpone their visit to Vivid Sydney until weather conditions improve.

The festival’s light projections on the Sydney Opera House, Sydney Harbour Bridge, Customs House & at Central Park and Chatswood will be operating. However, the majority of the Vivid Light locations will not be switched on this evening including Taronga Zoo, Martin Place, Darling Harbour, the Royal Botanic Gardens & the majority of lighting installations around Circular Quay, The Rocks and Walsh Bay.

Vivid Sydney events that will proceed as scheduled today include the Bjork Digital exhibition at Carriageworks, light projections at Central Park, indoor precincts The Galeries and Westfield Sydney, the Vivid Ideas sessions & Vivid Music events.

Destination New South Wales Chief Executive Officer & Vivid Sydney Executive Producer, Sandra Chipchase, said “Vivid Sydney’s priority is always the safety of its patrons & with this in mind, we need to close some of the festival precincts and light installations this Sunday night & we encourage visitors to postpone their trip until the weather improves. We want to thank Vivid Sydney fans for their patience & understanding as we continue to manage the impact of this weekend’s extreme weather”

“The festival will run through to Saturday the 18th of June so there’s still around 2 more weeks to visit Vivid Sydney once the weather improves” Ms Chipchase said.
