Ten of the Best Sydney Festival Events You Can Hit Up for Under $50

This month, things are about to get a touch noisier here in Sydney, thanks to the arrival of a brand new outdoor pop-up space dedicated to live music, DJs and street art. Taking over the corner of College and William Streets from January 5–30, Speakers Corner is set to deliver a giant dollop of al fresco summer entertainment. It’ll play host to a stellar and diverse lineup of performances, with openair gigs from artists including Brisbane singer-songwriter Jaguar Jonze, punk hip-hop trio Shady Nasty, drill trio Sydney Yungins, Melbourne’s Sunshine and Disco Faith Choir, and stacks more.

Catch indie rockers King Stingray fresh off the back of their Triple J 2021 Unearthed Artist of the Year win, settle in for the serene tunes of Gordi or rock out to legendary punk rockers like Tropical Fuck Storm and Amyl and the Sniffers. Also in the mix you’ll find a healthy sprinkling of comedy, cabaret and art to liven up your summer nights. Meanwhile, the onsite bar promises to keep you hydrated with sips from the likes of Squealing Pigs, Gordons, Atomic Brewing and Heaps Normal, while culinary options include bites like spiced beef kofte and mango curd tart.
