Pass the tail end of summer with female-led music, food and art inspired by Barangaroo’s history

This February, a new festival celebrating female-led and Indigenous cultural voices is taking over Barangaroo Reserve.

Every Friday, Saturday and Sunday over the month, there’ll be free live music from a diverse line-up including Sampa the Great, Wallace, Caiti Baker, Thandi Phoenix, Thelma Plum and Okenyo.

Female guest chefs such as Analiese Gregory (Franklin, Hobart, Bar Brosé), Jane Strode (Fred’s) and Claire Van Vuuren (Bloodwood) will be running the food offering, showcasing a different menu each weekend that highlights local, seasonal ingredients. There’ll also be Aboriginal weaving, drum making, music and language workshops running throughout the month.

The festival is inspired by the story of the woman Barangaroo, a strong female leader of the Cammeraygal people who resisted and fought English colonisation.
