Destination NSW today announced that in the interest of the health and safety of the community, Vivid Sydney will be postponed from September 17 to October 9, 2021.
Employment, Investment, Tourism and Western Sydney Minister Stuart Ayres said NSW must work together to contain the current outbreak and noted that “we all want to see Sydney shine in through the spectacular spectacle of creativity and innovation that is Vivid Sydney in September and October this year.
“The recent outbreak has presented a new challenge for everyone, and the health and safety of our citizens and the entire event community involved in Vivid Sydney is our primary concern.
“Destination NSW will continue to work with NSW Health and other agencies to deliver a safe Vivid Sydney for COVID later this year, with the support of our event partners, artists, sponsors and suppliers.
“Vivid Sydney will only proceed if it is safe to do so.”
Vivid Sydney 2021 plans to include more than 200 events celebrating the city’s diversity, resilience, Indigenous culture and vibrant creative community. The festival will see Circular Quay, The Rocks, Barangaroo, Darling Harbor and Luna Park Sydney, all showcasing a fascinating kaleidoscope of entertaining light artwork.
Vivid Sydney is owned, managed and produced by the Government of New South Wales through Destination NSW and in 2019 attracted 2.4 million attendees, delivering $ 172 million in visitor spending to the economy of the New South Wales.
The New South Wales government has also announced that it is providing targeted support to the state’s accommodation sector following lost bookings during the winter school holiday period.
The cash flow increase funding will allow qualifying accommodation facilities that lost overnight stays between June 25 and July 11 inclusive to apply for grants of up to $ 5,000.
Full details of the revised Vivid Sydney 2021 schedule will be made available online in the coming weeks as venues and event owners finalize logistics. Ticket holders will be able to transfer their ticket to the new event date or request a refund through the relevant ticket agent.
