If you can’t make it to Splendour in the Grass this year, then get excited – because your favourite Aussie festival is heading to Sydney for Splendour in the City.
The festival, which is a spin on a hugely popular regional event, will feature as a pop up at Sydney’s Overseas Passenger Terminal from Saturday, July 10th to Sunday, Jule 18th.
Supported by the NSW Government, Splendour in the City will offer Sydneysiders and visitors a tantalising, nine-day long taste of Splendour goodness with over 20 artists across two rooms, the Comedy Club, long table dining, specialty bars including The Strummer Bar and The Winery, art installations, markets, Little Splendour kid’s program, a Freak VR room pop up and much more.
While all events in the Customs and Cargo Halls are ticketed with all proceeds going to the artists, entry to the general event area is free, so you and your mates can swing on by on a whim for dinner or drinks during the nine-day pop-up event.

Splendour in the City’s 900 capacity Customs Hall and 400 capacity Cargo Hall are set to host a bunch of Australia’s biggest and brightest home-grown talent in a rare intimate setting including:
