Vivid Sydney 2019, a 23-day festival of light, music and ideas, has named Eventbrite as its official ticketing partner.
Under the agreement, Eventbrite will become the primary ticketing agent for Vivid Sydney program activities, which run from May 24 to June 15.
Some of the bigger events that will be ticketed by Eventbrite as part of the festival program include the Game Changer Series: Spike Lee on Films, Politics and Race; the New Horizons program which features talks from creator of The Future of Sex podcast Bryony Cole and award-winning journalist Marc Fennell; and Stories With Impact: Backtrack Boys, a Documentary Australia discussion and viewing session.
Phil Silverstone, general manager at Eventbrite Asia Pacific, said: “We’re thrilled to be the official ticketing partner of Vivid Sydney, a festival renowned not only for its spectacular light shows and installations, dynamic music performances and inspiring discussion series; but also for setting the benchmark in world-class creativity and innovation.
“This is a landmark partnership for Eventbrite in Australia, and we look forward to working closely with Vivid Sydney to provide an outstanding experience to the many local and international guests set to enjoy this year’s festival.”
Vivid Light will see Sydney’s skyline illuminated from 6pm each evening, with more than 50 light installations to light up the city during the event.
Vivid Music will feature local and international acts such as FKA Twigs, Curve Ball and Rüfüs Du Sol. Vivid Ideas involves talks, hands-on workshops and industry forums, in an annual celebration of innovation, creativity and community.
Events held at the Museum of Contemporary Art span the innovation and imagination sector from technology and start-up culture to design and architecture, film and screen content to animation and VFX.
Destination NSW chief executive and Vivid Sydney executive producer, Sandra Chipchase, said: “Vivid Sydney is not only the largest event in Australia but it is also one of the most-loved, and we know that guests are inspired by the artists, installations, performances, discussions and ideas that are showcased over the 23 days of the event. Working with Eventbrite is exciting for the festival and will make it simple for guests to plan their Vivid Sydney experience.”
