Make The Most Of The New Year At This Free 5-Day Street Party Is Taking Over Sydney

Summer in Sydney this New Year is looking the goods. After a successful traffic-stopping inaugural festival in January of this year, it's just been announced ELEVATE Sydney will be returning next month to celebrate summer and the new year. 

The multi-day street party is hosted on the Cahill Expressway, with unmatched views over sparkly Sydney Harbour. 

To make way for ELEVATE, the busy city highway which sits above Circular Quay will be closed off to cars and opened up to foot traffic only from Tuesday 3 January to Saturday 7 January with a line-up  live music, renowned Australian DJs, family-friendly activities and the return of the acclaimed drone SkyShow.  

On the line-up is Amy Shark, Mallrat, Becca Hatch, Betty Who, Client Liaison (DJ), Drax Project, Mallrat, Thelma Plum, The Veronicas, and more. 

Whether you are after family-friendly entertainment, afternoon DJ sessions, or high-energy performances by renowned artists as the sun sets and into the night, ELEVATE Sydney will ride the wave of the new year buzz all week long.
