Sydney Festival

Sydney doesn’t muck around when it comes to starting the year off with a bang. Every January, Sydney Festival transforms the city with an adventurous and diverse program that celebrates critical ideas and cutting-edge art and performance.

The 2019 program, running from 9 –27 January, features international theatre such as Beware of Pity and HOME while offering raucous shows like Shànghǎi MiMi and Pigalle that are just a small snippet of what the entire program has to offer. While some shows are ticketed, there are also plenty of experiences that are completely free of charge, from the moon art installations at World Square, Darling Harbour and Barangaroo South to the return of the beloved Sydney Symphony Under The Stars in Parramatta Park and our Circus Comes To Town weekend in Prince Alfred Square. There are free art installations at Carriageworks, the Museum of Contemporary Art, UNSW Galleries and Artspace, and free talks with artists and experts at UTS, NSW State Library and more. There is certainly something for everyone and we’re so excited to experience it all!
