Sydney Festival: 7 – 26 January

In News
Originally conceived by the Sydney Committee, the NSW State Government and the City of Sydney with a view to attracting people into the city centre during the holiday month of January, the Sydney Festival has grown to become one of Australia’s largest annual cultural celebrations with an international reputation for modern, popular and intelligent programming.

From the central business district to Parramatta, Sydney Festival brings to life unique spaces including the Festival Village in Hyde Park, Sydney Town Hall and The Domain, as well as making the most of Sydney’s best venues including Carriageworks, Riverside Theatres and Sydney Opera House.

The program is kaleidoscopic in its diversity, from burlesque circus to Chicago rap to Dutch theatre; from contemporary dance to family programs to traditional Indigenous arts practice. In all, the program comprises around 370 performances and around 100 events performed by over 700 artists in more than 30 venues each year. Inclusive programming, a broad range of free events and accessible pricing policies for the ticketed shows means that Sydney Festival is open to all, welcoming Sydneysiders and visitors from wherever they live. Tickets to majority of performances are available on the day for only $25 at the Tix for Next to Nix booth in Hyde Park, right in the heart of the city.
