Hordern Pavilion

Time Out says

The Hordern does the job when it comes to bigger audiences. Ample seating wraps around the huge standing area - it's just damn spacious. There are plenty of amenities, the sound suits big gigs and it's easy to get to and grab a cab home with ease. What more could you ask for?

Finders Keepers Markets

  • Markets

"Finders keepers, losers weepers" used to be a well-known singing refrain in every Aussie schoolyard, but at the Hordern Pavilion this Christmas, nobody (we hope) will be crying, because the Finders Keepers Markets is returning to Sydney and, frankly, the whole thing looks downright delightful.  From Friday, December 8 to Sunday, December 10, the Hordern Pavilion will house Australia’s most consciously-curated markets, with Sydney playing host to more than 170 small creative businesses from NSW and across the country. This three-day market is all about celebrating creative local business – punters will be able to pick up hand-made ceramics, slow fashion, jewellery, homewares, original art and much, much more from the market’s huge array of stalls. It’s the perfect place to get a head start on your Christmas shopping and pick up a few gifts for yourself, too. Take a break from shopping with a bevvy from the Finders Keepers’ summer bar, sip on free cold filter coffee from Allpress Espresso and groove to live sets from local DJs. There will also be fabulous workshops run by the Finders Keepers Indigenous Program, plus colourful craft activities running all weekend for kids and adults alike. The Finders Keepers Markets will be open from 4pm to 9pm on Friday, and from 10am to 5pm on Saturday and Sunday. Entry costs $6, and can be bought at the door cashless, or booked in ahead of time by clicking right here. Kids under 13 can come in for free. RECOMMENDED: Want more? Here are the

The Darkness

  • Rock and indie

Do we have permission to land? Yes? Good. We hope you’re ready to rock, because the band that single-handedly rescued glam rock is heading back Down Under with a rock spectacle to celebrate a very special anniversary with some famous friends. Multi-platinum UK rock royalty the Darkness are returning to Australia in February 2024 to perform three very special Let There Be Rock events in Sydney, Brisbane, and Melbourne, celebrating the 20th anniversary of their debut album Permission to Land. The album, which delivered iconic songs such as ‘I Believe in A Thing Called Love’ and ‘Love Is Only A Feeling’ will be performed live, in its entirety, as will a string of album B-sides and rarities.  The Darkness will be supported by one of Australia’s finest rock bands, You Am I, with their phenomenal The Majesty of Tap Spinal Tap tribute show, plus Aussie gems like dance-punk trio DZ Deathrays, queer pop-punk duo Cry Club, and DJ’s Eleven & Denim are coming along for the ride. Igniting the mainstream rock scene like a meteor of sonic brilliance back in the early 2000s, the Darkness is known for their trademark falsetto, spandex, guitar riffs and extravagant mind-blowing live shows. It’s time to tease your hair and squeeze yourself back into your questionable spandex outfits, because they’re promising us that Let There Be Rock will be a bonafide full rock show experience. After all, love might only be a feeling, but hell, it’s a thing we believe in.  Let There Be Rock comes to Sydney’s


  • Rap, hip hop and R&B

What-what, what, what? It’s time to pop some tags and look incredible in your grandad’s clothes, because Macklemore is heading back Down Under with a series of headline shows in Australia and New Zealand in May 2024. The multi-platinum and Grammy award-winning alternative hip-hop artist behind hits like ‘Thrift Shop’ and ‘Can’t Hold Us’ just dropped his first album in six years. BEN is his third solo studio album, and includes tunes like ‘CHANT’ featuring Australia’s very own Tones And I. Admittedly very listenable, this album has thrust Macklemore back into the charts.  Does anyone else remember when Macklemore headlined the NRL Grand Final in 2017? And he performed marriage equality anthem ‘Same Love’ just a couple of months before the result of Australia’s same-sex marriage plebiscite was announced? Anyone else remember holding up their lighter and crying when that came on at the pub? Anyone?  Moving on, our guy was last in Australia in 2022, performing the headline slot for the fifth edition of Fridayz Live alongside legendary artists like Akon, TLC and Craig David. After a couple of shows in New Zealand, Macklemore will play four headline shows in Australia, starting at Sydney’s Hordern Pavilion on Saturday, May 11. He’s then off to Melbourne’s John Cain Arena on Wednesday, May 15, and Brisbane’s Riverstage on Friday, May 17, before rounding out his headline tour with a final show at Perth’s HBF Stadium on Monday, May 20. The Telstra Plus pre-sale begins on Monday, Novem
