Across the last decade, Sydney's nightlife hasn't exactly had the best reputation. Now though, the era of lockouts has ended, COVID restrictions on dancing have been dropped, and there's a lot (like, heaps) of talk about Sydney blossoming into a bustling, vibing, always-on 24-hour city.
And here to help kick start this bold new age of nightlife in Sydney is a wild 24-hour party that is dedicated to awesome local artists and getting sweaty on the DF.
Put together by Solotel, alongside a band of Sydney's best events and party organisers, including Motorik, Heaps Gay, Picnic, Fruit Bowl, and FBi Radio, the event is called "24 Hour Party" and it'll go down at 17 stages and 11 venues across the city with entertainment planned for the full 24 hours. Did we mention it's totally free too?
Covering ground from Newtown to Kings Cross and out to Parramatta, venues in on the gig are Kings Cross Hotel, The Marly, The Bank, Goros, The Golden Sheaf, The Albion Parramatta, Barangaroo House, The Erko, Public House Petersham, The Sackville Rozelle, and The Clock in Surry Hills.
"As a group, we’re enormous supporters of reviving Sydney’s nightlife economy and that’s why it’s important to us that the 24 Hour Party involves and supports so much of the industry we love," said Elliot Solomon, CEO of Solotel.
"We’re excited to be working closely with the new NSW Government 24-Hour Economy Commissioner and City of Sydney to ensure Sydney’s nightlife thrives once again.”
