One of Sydney’s busiest roads, with views of Sydney’s world-famous harbor, turns into a New Year’s week-long party venue.
The Cahill Expressway will be temporarily closed for 7 days starting December 31st for the Elevate Sydney Festival.
Markets, performers and big screens entertain visitors during the day and enjoy live acts, pop-up food and bar experiences at night.
More than 180 artists, including Tones And I, Tim Minchin, Baker Boy, Electric Fields, Marcia Hines and The Wiggles, will stage and host the largest drone show in the Southern Hemisphere.
The festival officially opens on New Year’s Day and runs until January 6th, free of charge, but tickets are limited to 30,000.
“The day after the fireworks, this event celebrates the New Year by celebrating what makes our city wonderful,” said New South Wales Prime Minister Dominic Perrott.
“There is no other place to host this kind of event. Our harbor, environment and weather are nowhere else.
“This was a tough time for hospitality and tourism. We promise to do everything we can to rebuild these industries and ensure that people have the opportunity to enjoy the city again.”
