Sydney Festival’s Genres
Every January, Sydney Festival brings the city to life in a kaleidoscope of cultural celebration — one that baffles all who witness it.
From heart-pounding circus acts, theatrical thrillers, abstract virtual realities, captivating music and dance performances, to massive art installations… Sydney Festival captures the essence of this magical city with colorful ferocity.
In 2020, from January 8th – 26th, Sydney welcomed locals and globetrotters alike to revel in the diversity of over 450 performances and 134 different events spanning 53 unique venues around the city.
These events are put on by both local and international extraordinaires, many being free of charge and family friendly.
Some of these events include the Karaoke Carousel, 10 Minute Dance Parties, and workshops such as trapeze classes and language schools.
To bring the city together in an even more uplifting and powerful way, Sydney Festival also hosts many “Big Thinking” forums, such as Competing Sovereignties and Analogue Body In A Digital World.
What most popularly brings people to Sydney Festival, however, is it’s musical performances.
In year’s past, they have welcomed legends such as Björk, The Flaming Lips, and Elvis Costello. This year, the festival will feature the likes of Aqua Sonic, The Pussy Riot Theater, Mad Max, and many more.
