Balmy nights and beautiful music: THE Sydney Festival picnic tradition.

Our annual free concerts in The Domain are amongst the Festival's most anticipated events.

Join thousands of Sydneysiders and visitors to the city as we pull out the picnic rug and welcome the good times - all for free.

Turn up the summer heat as one of rock music's most admired and distinctive voices returns to Australia in the guise of an Italian pop crooner. Mike Patton, the charismatic front-man of Faith No More, gives dramatic new life to popular and folk tunes of the 1950s and 60s.

The night features songs from some of the great names of Italian music, including tunes made famous by the likes of Connie Francis and Frank Sinatra.

Under the name Mondo Cane, Patton's glowing vocals are given beautiful depth and colour by an orchestra, choir and band.

Join us for this thrilling ride through Patton's passion for all things Italian.Joining Mondo Cando on the Summer Sounds line-up are Australian artists Brous and Tango Saloon.

Haunting melodies, shimmering organ lines and one powerful voice: Brous' music is an uncompromising vision for pop. A new musical venture by Melbourne based Sophia Brous. Her songs evoke the widescreen majesty of Scott Walker and classic melodies of Morricone's Mina - unforgettable choruses crowned by Brous' extraordinarily expressive voice.

Tango meets spaghetti western is one way Sydney based Tango Saloon have been described. Signed to Mike Patton's Ipecac Label the experimental tango band also touches on rock, gypsy, jazz and electronics. A sure to delight to open the Summer Sounds stage.

Tango Saloon : 6.15pm - 7pm
Brous : 8pm - 8.30pm
Mondo Cane : 9pm - 10.30pm

Mondo Cane also appears at the
