Sydney’s popular festival of light, music and ideas, Vivid Sydney, returns next week to mark its 10-year anniversary.

The 23-day festival will run from 25 May to 16 June and will again include a free public exhibition of outdoor lighting sculptures and installations, as well as a contemporary music program and creative industry forums.

American Express once again joins Vivid Sydney as a Vivid Partner, and Amex card members will be able to enjoy a range of perks during the festival.

First up, card members will be able to kick back in the American Express Lounge, located at a new venue – Level 3 at Cruise Bar Roof Top, Overseas Passenger Terminal in Circular Quay.

In the lounge you’ll be able to enjoy some complimentary food whilst taking in the views of the harbour and Opera House. Entry is free and card members may bring in one guest (two if you hold the American Express Platinum Card or Centurion Card).

Vivid Sydney is also at Taronga Zoo this year, where it’s shining a light on conservation and the wonders of wildlife with a display of light sculptures. Amex card members have access to benefits like a 10% discount on Lights for the Wild tickets, a complimentary American Express Sky Pass for the Sky Safari Cable Car, and more.
