Speakers Corner

With 22 nights of live music, DJs, a dash of comedy and a splash of street art, all roads lead to Speakers Corner this summer.   

Fun, fiery and proudly local, Speakers Corner is a place to tell it like it is through live performance and have a cracking good time about it. This is what Sydney sounds like – all its guts, glory and glitter packed into one corner in the heart of the city. With a bar, of course.  

If you’ve been lurking around long enough, you’ll remember Sydney’s original Speaker’s Corner as a place for debate, eccentricity and free speech – where anyone could jump on a ladder or milk crate and make themselves heard. This summer we’ve swapped milk crate for main stage to showcase a diverse line-up of Australia’s finest musicians, comedians and voices of the future.  

Be it jazz, indie, punk, funk, americana, electronica or belly laughs you need, this is the corner for it.  With both a sunset shift and a late shift in play, our open-air gig series will make sure this summer is as noisy as it should be.
