Livid! Vivid Sydney 2021 COVID cancelled, planning underway for 2022

By

Fans of Vivid Sydney will be livid at the news that Vivid Sydney 2021 has been washed out by the decidedly unriveting and deathly dull COVID virus, in what has been a "difficult decision" by the NSW Government. 

The NSW Government reports having made the difficult decision to cancel Vivid Sydney 2021, but it says "the world’s largest festival of light, music and ideas will shine brightly again in May-June 2022."

Of course, that all depends on whether or not the endless lockdowns infecting Australia are actually over by then, but clearly, given the ongoing uncertainty of present day 2021, we're told "the decision has been made to cancel Vivid Sydney 2021 to minimise the impact on event attendees, partners, artists, sponsors and suppliers."

So, planning is now underway for next year, with Vivid Sydney to return from 27 May to 18 June 2022.

Minister for Jobs, Investment, Tourism and Western Sydney Stuart Ayres said Vivid Sydney would be a shining light for the community to look forward to next year.

Ayres said: “As we work together to contain the current outbreak and get our community vaccinated, we can all look forward to the return of major events like Vivid Sydney that bring us together in celebration.

“Vivid Sydney 2022 will shine brighter than ever – our artists and creative industries are so eager to put on a show and we can’t wait to see the Harbour City shining brightly again.

“We thank everyone who has contributed to the planning for Vivid Sydney 2021. Of course, it’s incredibly disappointing to cancel for the second year but the most responsible decision was to cancel early, giving everyone certainty and minimising impacts where possible.

“The health and safety of our community is our highest priority, which is why we’re encouraging everyone to get vaccinated so we can get back to enjoying COVID-safe events again soon,” Ayres rocked.

Expressions of interest for Vivid Sydney 2022 Light, Music and Ideas programs will open next week.
