Exuberant, exciting and forever effervescent - the best time to experience Sydney is in January, when the city is in full celebratory mode. Sydney Festival presents the biggest and best of the world's performing and visual arts, all coming together in an avalanche of artistic activity.
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 late night burlesque and cutting edge dance to international theatre; from avant garde classical, to indie and world music, the Festival has something to cater to every taste and budget. Sydney Festival is the best way to celebrate Sydney in summer.
