Picnic Social at Opera Bar

Premier Sydney events company, Picnic, will re-ignite their much loved Picnic Social sessions from 31 January, programming our city’s most talented, emerging and established live acts and DJs into Opera Bar for a truly iconic Sunday residency.

Settle in each week from 3pm to 10pm for a crucial dose of culture and programming sophistication. From sunny afternoon disco to immersive live acts across a range of genres - think spell-binding ambient compositions through to heart-swelling live soul and lively post punk, and closing out with some after sunset chair dancing; Opera Bar's harbourside stage is no stranger to world-class music sourced directly from our own backyard. 

This Picnic Social program is made possible through the City of Sydney’s CBD Activation and Create NSW Play The City grants programs, along with our venue partners.
