Hollywood Quarter Neon Lyric Walk for Vivid Sydney

Foster St
Surry Hills NSW 2010
Hollywood Quarter

Every day, all day Friday 24 May to Sunday 16 June

Neon Art Walk is best after the sun goes down

The Hollywood Quarter precinct in Surry Hills will be bathed in a neon glow during Vivid Sydney this year, as the ‘HQ Neon Lyric Trail’ lights up from 24 May till 15 June 2024.

The curated walk invites art and music lovers to muse on the songs and lyrics that have informed our collective past and touched on the concept of humanity. Twelve venues present their own interpretation, via song lyrics, which has been transformed into neon for visitors to explore. 

In addition to the Neon Trail, the renowned venues around Hollywood Quarter will be offering food and drink deals for every taste and every budget. With some of the best restaurants and bars in town, guest chef appearances, and a special pre and post-Vivid Sydney Light Walk menu on offer, the choice is irresistible!

As well, there will also be live music gigs, dj’s, performances, workshops and guest panels, and special cinema screenings from Wednesday to Sunday, each week.


Explore the Neon Lyric Trail, read the inspiration for our interpretation of ‘humanity’ and listen to the music, as you go, via a Hollywood Quarter Spotify playlist. Butter, Big Trouble, Chin Chin, Gilda’s, Golden Age, Harry’s, Hollywood Hotel, Nel, Piermarq*, Poly, Soda Factory, Tio’s.

With venues offering unique music and dining experiences, participants can explore the precinct, dine, drink and be entertained as they view the Neon Lyric Trail. Music and Art events are free, and the food offerings vary in price (starting from less than $10 for a beer and snacks to a degustation menu).

So make a night of it and get ready to explore the venues, nooks and crannies of the Hollywood Precinct during Vivid Sydney 2024.
