Sydney Festival

Sydney Festival

You know it’s a new year when Sydney Festival arrives: this multi-pronged event covers music, art, theatre, dance, kids’ events, and lecture talks. The opening night party, a free concert held in the Domain, is a must for every Sydneysider. Last year, I saw funk legend Chaka Khan dazzle a crowd of thousands.
