The countdown is getting tighter, with SXSW Sydney – the first-ever edition of the legendary futuristic festival to be held outside of Texas – being set loose across the city from October 15-22. Chippendale will be at the epicentre of this global innovation convergence and is a natural fit considering that the suburb has long been at the forefront of creativity, culture and thinking outside the box. Shape your festival experience with incredible events across tech, gaming, music and film, including Palace Cinema and pop-ups in Chippendale’s e-gaming hub Fortress, both in Central Park Mall, and at the cutting-edge performance space Phoenix Central Park. You can keep the vibrance and energy pumping long after the festival is over too with more than 100 bars, clubs, eateries, galleries and entertainment spaces to explore in the tiny but mighty suburb. For instance, discover a world of flavours in the hawker-style Spice Alley, or if you’re after a cheap eat or a decadent feast, support local and taste global at Sydney’s most eclectic eat street, Kensington Street.
Sydney bursts to life in spring with a magical season of arts, innovation, food and entertainment. From the highly anticipated launch of SXSW 2023 which comes to life in Chippendale to the return of GroundSwell in Brookvale Arts District and the rise of new bars in the buzzing UpTown CBD, there’s excitement to be had in all pockets of our city.
This spring, Sydney welcomes entertainment
