From Friday, outdoor concerts in NSW will be able to have 500 attendees.
NSW Minister for Tourism, Jobs and Investment Stuart Ayres said the he was pleased to see the creative arts sector show signs of recovery.
“We hope that Sydneysiders, residents of NSW and visitors from around the country will start planning now and book accommodation, tours and attractions to make the most of their Vivid Sydney 2021 experience,” Mr Ayres said.
“I can’t wait to see the creativity that comes forth – we are all hungry for inspiration, whimsy, innovation and fun, which is exactly what Vivid Sydney is all about.”
When Vivid was cancelled in March this year, organisers promised the festival would “shine brighter than ever in 2021”.
Vivid began in 2009 and by 2019 attracted more than two million visitors annually to projected light installations, music performances and ideas workshops.
Festival programming is yet to be determined, but organisers have called for artists and creatives to register expressions of interest to be involved in the light displays at vividsydney.com.
