Time Out says

A free two-day festival takes over the revitalised Wynyard precinct with content curated by TEDxSydney, an artist market, DJs and parties

‘Tis the season for street parties in Sydney, and now the Wynyard district – famous for its train and bus stations that are many commuters’ gateway to and from the city centre – is getting in on the act.

Wynyard is in the process of a widespread revitalisation by the City of Sydney, and the two-day Flow and Glow festival shines a spotlight on this precinct in the heart of the CBD, pointing the way towards its evolution from being less a thoroughfare and more a community. 

With a theme of sustainable values, the party will feature a two-night line-up of DJs in Wynyard Lane outside Shell House, headlined by Belta Variant on Thursday May 26 and Mickey Kojak on Friday May 27 (5-10pm). In between acts you can visit local retailers and venues to grab a bite to eat, shop or enjoy a cocktail.

A one-of-a-kind content series at George Place in partnership with TEDxSydney, titled ‘Butterfly Effect’, will showcase sustainability-focused speakers, including author and councillor Jess Scully; 24-hour Economy Commissioner Mike Rodrigues; and brewer Pete Brennan of Heaps Normal. The talks will explore creative-led recovery, how real change is made in culture and business and how good design adds value to a community. Entry is free but register here for tickets.

Artist Markets will be open at 50 Carrington Street, 4-9pm, showing and selling work and hosting artist talks at 5.30pm each day. Keep an eye out for spectacular sculptures that will be installed in Wynyard Lane.

Download the Flow and Glow app to unlock the full experience, including offers such as $1 ramen and 2-for-1 cocktails.

Flow and Glow is proudly funded by the NSW Government, and curated by real estate and investment firm CBRE, in partnership with creative agencies Villa & Villa and Motti & Smith. Find the entire program here.
