Around 300 performances and 80 events, involving more than 1000 artists from around the globe, and performed in at least 20 venues each year make Sydney Festival Australia’s single largest and most attended cultural event. The festival attracts in excess of 1 million people to its ticketed shows and free events which enliven Sydney with this astonishing cultural celebration showcasing dance, circus, contemporary and classical music, visual arts, and more. The festival kicks off each year with a distinctive Festival First Night, a free event featuring up to 500 performers, which brings music, dance and visual spectacle to the streets and parks of central Sydney. This, however, is only the first day of the three week long event which has been held annually since 1977 and has since cemented itself as one of the greatest festivals in the world. Finally, if you come from the northern hemisphere, bear in mind the fact that January in Sydney is a hot summer month, which makes the Sydney Festival an all the more attractive option. Visit the festival and you are guaranteed a summer full of fantastic entertainment.
