Sydney Festival 2022

Sydney Festival 2022

There’s a warm breeze floating in through the window and it’s carrying the sound of music, laughter and thunderous applause. It’s carrying the salty smell of the harbour, and of freshly cut, picnic-ready lawns. Summer’s in the air – and Sydney Festival is here to celebrate.

With more than 130 events right across Greater Sydney, this January Sydney Festival are animating locations inside, outside, waterside and streetside with a dynamic program of theatre, music, dance, visual art and all the experimental and immersive in-between places of live performance. 

Sydney Festival's 2022 program will reunite artists with audiences on a scale we’ve not enjoyed for a few long years. So join us. Explore your city and explore those parts of yourself that have been hibernating. Come and find your Sydney side.
