Sydney’s only New Year’s Eve festival NYE in the Park are thrilled to announce their bumper 2019 line up, lead by iconic Sydney-based powerhouse duo Hermitude and plunderphonic maestro Girl Talk (USA) with an exclusive performance. They spearhead a bill of luminaries alongside exciting young talent, all descending on Victoria Park’s natural tree-lined amphitheatre to ring in the new year.
Following last year’s sold-out event, organisers will continue their mission to provide a fuss-free, affordable and fun-filled festival environment, all ending in a crescendo of the festival’s own curated fireworks – the backdrop to its two festival stages.
Straight off the back of announcing a massive world tour and a new album that drops at the end of this month, local duo Hermitude proudly close-out the inner-west festival. With headline dates across Asia, North America, Europe and New Zealand they’ll be sure to bring the energy to the NYE in the Park stage. The greatest party DJ on the planet Girl Talk returns to Australia for a special, exclusive performance this NYE, we anticipate nothing less than all-out pandemonium as he counts us down to 2020.
Recently unveiling their incredible sophomore album, SAFIA are ready to showcase their new cinematic soundscapes along with a brand new live show. Fresh from opening for Kylie Minogue it’s safe to say a Client Liaison live show is an experience like no other, there’s absolutely no missing this suave throwback duo.
These musical powerhouses unite with some of the most exciting talent Australia has to offer including festival mainstays Crooked Colours, dance-royalty Bag Raiders who’s long-awaited sophomore album drops this week, legendary dance-pop pioneers Sneaky Sound System, the much anticipated return of electro icons Van She Tech, everyone’s favourite pizza guy Touch Sensitive, chart-topping producer Young Franco, brooding indie-pop breakout GRAACE off the back of her viral Like A Version, Melbourne disco-pop sensation Owl Eyes, the incredibly talented enigmatic producer Alice Ivy as well as Chase Zera, Jawbreakers, Happiness is Wealth and All My Friends DJs.
Set in the lush oasis of Camperdown’s Victoria Park in a spacious and relaxed setting, NYE in the Park is a mere stroll from the many surrounding train stations and bus routes. Get down early for a summer sunset session and indulge in the diverse and ample pop-up bars, street eat delights and fun in the sun festivities.
For those who like it luxe there’s the option of a VIP Garden Experience with a close-to-stage, private viewing garden with curated gastropub eats, glam teams, powder room and priority entry access, or go full Kimmy K with the VVIP Skydeck including an exclusive bar and elevated viewing platform, all-inclusive beverage and premium finger foods, canapes and sliders, all serviced by hosts and waitstaff to tender to your every desire.
Knowing all too well the headache Sydney NYE can be, organisers had a clear vision for the event saying “New Year’s in Sydney has always been overcrowded, overpriced and ultimately, underwhelming, and we want to change that. The last two years offered 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.”
The festival has also announced their partnering with popular live music discovery app and media company Whatslively to bring a host of underground hip hop and trap DJs to a pop-up stage – adding a third and final arena to the already colossal event. Already known to regular scene-goers, the Whatslively stage will be headlined by The Kid Laroi’s DJ HAAN as well as party favourites Teriyaki Mami and MANLIKEMUSTII. They’ll be spinning alongside Ayshe, Baessia, DJ Vinny, Esar, Joshua Amour and Rani ensuring all-out pandemonium.
