Sydney Festival: our city in summer
Lieven Bertels outlines the program for Sydney Festival 2013, an explosion of theatre, dance, music, visual arts, film and more that will take over Sydney's venues, streets and parks from January 5-27.
From one-off musical experiences and intimate storytelling-based events to large-scale free visual spectaculars and plenty of opportunities for Sydneysiders to kick up their heels and dance, this year’s Sydney Festival has something for everybody. 92 events (18 of them free!) will take place across the Sydney CBD, Parramatta, the Inner West, Chatswood and Mosman.

Sydney Festival Is Our City In Summer:
The Festival is a celebration on a massive scale and is a natural promotion of the city of Sydney –
both are synonymous with energy, style, spectacle and sophistication.
For three weeks every January, the Festival presents a broad array of theatre, music, dance, film
and talks, attracting hundreds of thousands enthusiastic locals and visitors.
Sydney Festival has an impressive free program of small and large scale events including The
Domain Concerts with up to 60,000 people at each event; and the Ferrython, where four Sydney
ferries race past Sydney Opera House and back to the finish line under the iconic Harbour Bridge.
The Festival uses more than 30 venues across the city including Sydney Opera House, Seymour
Centre, Carriageworks as well as parks, streets and laneways. Each year, the Festival looks to
present events in unlikely places including beaches, gardens, and even skate parks…
In 2013, Sydney Festival will present more than 750 artists from over 17 countries around the world
Sydney Festival 2013 presents 25 Australian exclusives, 10 world premieres and 3 Australian
There is no rest for Festival devotees! Although many Festival shows have relatively short seasons
– ranging from one night to three weeks – it’s assured that there is something on every night.
The Festival has its own outdoor late-night venues including the Festival Garden in Hyde Park.
This is the perfect place to relax, have a drink and bite to eat, enjoy free live music and soak up the
atmosphere of Sydney’s glorious summer evenings. The late-night Festival venues are a great
way to experience the festival ‘buzz’.
In 2012, Sydney Festival headed west with Sydney Festival Parramatta – a 10 day program of
free and ticketed events across multiple venues in the heartland of Greater Sydney. This went so
well, we’re doing it again in 2013 with the Salon Perdu Spiegeltent and free opening and closing
Sydney Festival 2012 contributed $56.8 million to the NSW economy.
Welfare groups say Families Minister Jenny Macklin is out of touch as she continues to maintain she could survive on the dole. Tim Webster on government waste, and treating disadvantaged with more respect.
Sydney beaches are open today, despite a shark sighting forcing the evacuation of Bondi yesterday. Tens of thousands of people were left standing on the sand yesterday after the shark alarm was sounded.
