Sydney Festival 2017

The moon is staying in the trees chaining down on you and me, it’s summertime. With this summer’s heat comes a slew of music icons – think Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds and PJ Harvey, announced today as headline acts for the 2017 Sydney Festival. Curated for the first time by artistic director Wesley Enoch, the three-week festival promises a dedicated focus on visual arts and instillation. Sights not to miss include Snarkitecture’s The Beach, a display of 1.1 million white recyclable polyethylene balls forming an ocean at Cutaway, Barangaroo Reserve, and House Of Mirrors, as recently staged at Dark Mofo 2016. The Sydney Festival will run from February 7-29, 2017.
