In a festival first, the 2022 Vivid Sydney Light Walk will stretch continuously from the Sydney Opera House to Central Station activating new areas of the city including Darling Quarter and The Goods Line. We spoke to Vivid Sydney’s Festival Director and Light Curator Gill Minervini who shared her top picks of what not to miss along the 8km journey of light, and how these installations and projections bring to life this year’s creative direction, Vivid Sydney: The Soul of the City. 

“In 2022, Vivid Sydney dives deep into the essence of Sydney’s soul, exploring what defines the character of great cities. What makes them tick, what makes them unique, what it is that makes us love them and, what makes them powerful catalysts for change? This year I’m really excited about shining a light on some of the city’s lesser-known spaces, along with our icons, delivering bold, inclusive and innovative creative experiences.” - Gill Minervini

For Sydney With Love, by Ken Done and Spinifex Group 
In collaboration with animators from digital storytelling group Spinifex, Ken Done’s iconic scenes of Sydney Harbour will unfold across the Customs House façade, from boats sailing across the harbour to beautiful gardens, beach scenes and the city's most famous icons. “Sydney has been Ken’s muse for 80 years and his work is synonymous with the city. I am thrilled to have him involved in Vivid Sydney for the first time,” said Minervini.  

Endless Love, by Michaela Gleave  
A powerful proclamation and beacon of acceptance, this bright declaration of love shines above one of Sydney’s busiest travel ports, Circular Quay Station. The arched glowing words Endless Love is sure to be an Instagram favourite, embracing the city with a colourful, glowing gesture.  

Our Connected City, by Mandylights   
Watch Sydney’s skyline unite with light – as a kaleidoscopic design by Mandylights veils the city’s architecture with colourful projections, transforming Sydney Harbour into a mesmerising and photogenic spectacle. The uplifting display will feature more than 200 searchlights and brightly lit boats on the waters of Sydney Harbour.  

Bump in the Night, by James Dive  
At this seemingly sleepy “campsite” featuring 50 tents in Darling Harbour’s Tumbalong Park, audiences will be able to interact and be part of the fun. As viewers walk past and “wake up” the campers, torches will be activated inside the tents, alongside sounds of Sydney’s native fauna.

Convergence, by Mandylights  
After almost 40 years of darkness, the disused Goods Line tunnel will come alive during Vivid Sydney, luring visitors in as they follow bouncing rays of light into a fully immersive experience – a spectacular confluence of colour, and laser. 

The Vivid Sydney Dinner in partnership with Merivale  
During this Vivid Sydney first, Sydney’s ivy Ballroom will be transformed with light projections; a menu by some of Sydney’s favourite chefs, Dan Hong and Mike Eggert; hosted by actor and media personality Justine Clarke; with music by James Morrison, Ngaiire and Virginia Gay; as well as moving “Love Letters to Sydney” read by Julia Baird and Ken Done. “It will be a true celebration of Vivid and everything great about Sydney,” says Minervini. 

Vivid Music at The Goods Line DJ Stage 
A celebration of Sydney’s world-renowned DJ culture, The Goods Line DJ stage will see a diverse line-up of DJs from all eras and backgrounds creating the perfect soundtrack for The Goods Line Light Walk every night between 6pm-10.30pm.
