We’re Giving Away 50 Double Passes to an exclusive Vivid Sydney Afterparty

It’s set to be the best kick-on of 2022, and as Vivid Sydney edges closer, we’re giving away 50 double passes to the BRING’s Artist X Brand Summit afterparty

With only a matter of days until the 2022 edition of Vivid Sydney kicks off, excitement is high and anticipation is rising. Now though, we’re here to make things even more appealing by giving away 50 double passes to an exclusive afterparty: the BRING Artist & Brand Summit.

Yes, May 27th will serve as the official launch of Vivid Sydney 2022, which will itself see the New South Wales capital transformed into an illuminating fusion of creativity, innovation and technology thanks to more than 200 unmissable events. From stunning artists, to creative installations, to immersive conversations, Vivid Sydney 2022 is on track to be one of the best yet.

However, on June 2nd, the excitement is set to ramp up even more, and we’re eager to help get you there. Taking place at the Overseas Passenger Terminal at Circular Quay in Sydney, the BRING Artist & Brand Summit will be throwing down a gig as part of this year’s Vivid Sydney that’ll get you up-close, sweaty and personal with three of Australia and New Zealand’s fave party-starters.

With a lineup that includes the likes of Drax Project, Young Franco, and Hauskey, live performances will take place from a gorgeous location that overlooks the iconic Sydney Opera House. With patrons invited to enjoy some drinks, music, and the view of this year’s Vivid Sydney festival all at once, it’s an afterparty that is equally described as a “must-attend” event, and “the best kick-on of 2022”.

So how do you get yourself on the list for this amazing event? All you have to do is sign up to The Brag Media’s free live music newsletter The Live Music Observer below and answer in 25 words or less what Vivid Sydney event you are most excited for and why.

Of course, if you do happen to miss out on this epic lineup, you can take solace in the fact that it’s not the end of Vivid Sydney 2022, with an equally-mindblowing roster of events set to take over Sydney between May 27th and June 18th.

As always, Vivid Sydney aims to serve up a must-see roster of events, including the likes of the Vivid Music lineup. With some of the biggest names in local and international music coming together at venues all over the CBD, there’s no doubt this year’s festivities are some of the best ever.

Local icon Marcia Hines will premiere of The Gospel According to Marcia in the incredible surrounds of St Stephen’s Uniting Church. While international names such as Tommy Cash, Chai, Perfume Genius, and Perth’s Alter Boy are set to perform at Carriageworks.

The Vivid Music lineup also sees the likes of Baxter Dury make his Australian debut, bringing his louche sardonic music to Australia after more than two inimitable decades, and New Yorker Cakes Da Killa, who is at the forefront of heralding a new wave of queer hip-hop artists.

Similarly, Mo’ju, Elsy Wameyo, Mama Kin Spender, Kee’ahn, Haiku Hands, Mildlife, Gordon Koang, and Donny Bénet are just some of the names on the bill for the free Tumbalong Nights concert series at Tumbalong Park. As are The Morrisons, Lolo Lovina, and Cope St Parade, who will perform free shows as part of the Vivid Music at Central Station series throughout June.

Similarly, Vivid Live at Sydney Opera House continues the musical lineup, with the likes of Paul Kelly, Sampa the Great, Nils Frahm, and Tkay Maidza among those scheduled to perform at the iconic Sydney venue.

Meanwhile, the 2022 Vivid Light program boasts more than 50 light installations and projection artworks which will bring the city to life, with illuminating works by artists such as Ken Done (For Sydney with Love, Customs House projection), Leila Jeffreys (Temple installation at Walsh Bay, and Helen Eager (New York Sunday, MCA projection.

And of course, we can’t go past the Vivid Ideas roster, which will feature more than 85 intriguing talks and workshops as it explores the forces shaping our society thanks to some of the world’s brightest minds and fearless global storytellers.

Highlights of the Vivid Ideas roster include the likes of Oscar and Emmy award-winning director, screenwriter and playwright Aaron Sorkin, American broadcast journalist, author and television personality Gretchen Carlson, global superstar musician, record label owner, multi –award-winning artist and actor Troye Sivan, and other big names, including James Valentine and H.G Nelson, and Brigid Delaney and Ben Law.
