Well, it almost feels like Sydney is ... open again? Public life has been cautiously returning since May, with many of our favourite places slowly but surely opening back up. While big concerts are on hiatus until Delta Goodrem plays a promised arena tour in April 2021, music is still playing in more intimate venues across the city.
If the surge of livestreamed gigs during lockdown hasn't quite scratched your itch for hearing tunes performed live, you’ll be pleased to know that Sydney now has a crop of nightspots bringing musicians back to the stage for reimagined, physically distanced gigs. Check out our list and get ready have a shimmy (while seated an appropriate 1.5 metres from the other punters, of course).
If you are heading out, make sure you’re doing it safely. Always check ahead, venues have capped numbers and some require bookings while others operate on a first come, first served basis. If you feel at all symptomatic, stay home.
If you’re catching public transport or a rideshare to your destination, remember to mask up. Here’s where you can buy face masks in Sydney right now.
