If you had any doubts that live music and comedy are back, big time, then you need to check out Sydney's brand new pop-up outdoor venue and concert series in the heart of the city. The Sunset Piazza is in Cathedral Square, opposite Hyde Park, bringing with it 32 nights of music and comedy under the watch of the beautiful St Mary’s Cathedral building from January 28 through to March 21.
Sunset Piazza offers the kind of night out in the city you've been craving. Visit a local restaurant before the show or grab a bite to eat from on-site artisan providores serving panini and antipasti. Enjoy a pre-show drink from the bar (they have Italian wines, beer and aperitivi), and settle in for a selection of Sydney’s best DJs, pre-show.
So who's playing? Some astonishing talent, across the full spectrum of genres: think Ben Lee, Alex the Astronaut, the Umbilical Brothers, Opera Australia, Lawrence Mooney, Lizzy Hoo, James Morrison, JK-47 and more. And best of all the tickets are super-cheap – just $25 each.

Sunset Piazza is a key outcome from the NSW Government’s Summer Summit and part of the City of Sydney’s Al Fresco City initiative – a revitalisation project aimed at transforming the city into an outdoor cultural experience.
