There’s undeniably a collective exhaustion across the board when it comes to New Year’s in Sydney – expensive tickets, long bar lines, lacklustre entertainment and overcrowding are now unfortunately standard – with these obstacles-to-a-good-time merely compounded at harbour-side events; that are consistently plagued with hectic traffic and over-bearing tourists. This has dissuaded many music-lovers from committing to organised parties and events come New Year’s, with many preferring to stay indoors. Sydney creative event aficionados Falcona and party maestro Hot Dub Time Machine sympathise greatly with this plight, and for years now have been diligently working on a brand-new vision for NYE. Their dream event will now finally come to fruition this December.
Destined to become an annual highlight, NYE in the Park is a giant garden party, which will descend on the glorious grassy fields of Victoria Park, Broadway, for the very first time, this December 31st. This exciting inaugural celebration offers a hugely fun, highly affordable, drama-free night out – with ample space to dance, more bars and toilets than you can poke a stick at, a wide selection of great gourmet food, and all at a scenic, easy-to-reach location. Most important of all, NYE in the Park is an event designed with music-lovers in mind: a carefully-curated line-up of festival-sized proportions will transform the Park into a live music utopia. NYE in the Park‘s huge spread of international and national producers, bands and DJs will perform across two stages from early afternoon until late night. Better yet, this festival-sized line-up comes without a festival-sized price-tag: making it a fantastic, inner-city alternative to an expensive weekend at a festival out-of-town. Indeed, with prices starting at only $59, it might be one of the more affordable NYE options you will come across all year – full stop.
With venue selection paramount to a fuss-free time, NYE in the Park also offers an easy-to-get-to-location – far away from the tourist trap headaches. Ideally located in Sydney’s inner-west, Victoria Park is widely accessible by public transport (Redfern Station is a five-minute walk), yet is removed from the tourist and transport pitfalls of Circular Quay. The spacious grounds of Victoria Park offer ample green acreage where revelers can spread their wings: everyone will have room to move on this al fresco dancefloor. Edged with views of the Sydney city skyline, Victoria Park’s natural scenery – ancient towering trees, lush foliage, and beautiful heritage gardens rich with local flora and fauna – will provide a jaw-dropping backdrop for the night’s performances. As day turns to night, the sunny blue skies will fill with stars – and a special fireworks show will be unveiled.
