8 - 26 January
Please note: On Australia Day Sacrilege will open at 9am, the Lawn Library and Zip Water Stand will open at midday and the full Festival Village will open at 4.30pm.

In the beating heart of Hyde Park, the Village is an oasis of eats, beats and other treats. It's the perfect place to kick back in the afternoon sun or kick on into the balmy summer nights.

Expect a mix of free and ticketed events for all ages at all hours. Take a bounce on Sacrilege for free, with lunch time DJs setting the atmosphere to fun.

With five bars to choose from and plenty of food options – including Food SocietyJafe Jaffles, Woofy’s Hot Dogs and specially crafted treats from Gelato Messina – Festival Village will be just as delicious as it looks.

Check out the Village Bandstand and Rekorderlig Gazebo for weekend DJ sessions, playing free from 6:30pm til the wee hours. Browse the collection at the City of Sydney's Lawn Library and stay for daytime and twilight story time sessions or tune in for workshops. Drop by Folk in a Box, where one audience member will step into a wooden box and will be sung one song, by a solo musician, from 5pm-10pm.

That's all on top of the amazing array of ticketed performances you can check out below.
