From immersive art that sees you wandering through a light-up underwater forest, to music festivals that take you from sunset well into the night – summer is when Sydney comes alive. Soak up the sun, then take it to the max over the long hot nights with parties, up late events, street markets and more. There’s no excuse not to be out and about.
