Destination NSW chief executive Sandra Chipchase has officially launched the 2014 Vivid Sydney program, saying Sydney is set to be transformed with light, sound and ideas.
Chipchase said Vivid was a signature event for the State that appeals to locals, interstate and international visitors.
"That appeal is important as it ensures New South Wales maintains its position as the nation's number one destination for festivals and events," she said.
Deputy Premier Andrew Stoner said that the event gets "bigger, brighter and better" every year.
"Vivid Sydney is the largest festival of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere," he said. "It showcases Sydney, NSW and the talent across our creative industries to the world. It promises to be nothing short of amazing."
Martin Place and Sydney Harbour are set to be added to this year's program precincts.
