Before 2020 turned the world upside down, King Street Crawl was a yearly tradition. Come September each year, every venue spanning the length of King Street would be filled with live music from midday through to the early hours for one day. After taking a year off in 2020, the inner west institution is returning with a massive new three-day event pushing out from King Street and into neighbouring roads and two idyllic outdoor spaces.

King Street Carnival will take place from Friday, September 3 until Sunday, September 5 throughout Newtown's main road as well as Enmore Road, Erskineville Road, the Sydney Park Amphitheatre and Camperdown Memorial Park. While the details for the King Street festivities is yet to be announced, King Street Carnival has revealed the huge three-day lineup for the Sydney Park and Camperdown Memorial Park events.

Heading up the outdoor concerts is legendary group Yothu Yindi who will be performing alongside the likes of Sarah Blasko, Alex the Astronaut, All Our Exes Live In Texas and Emma Donovan and the Putbacks at Camperdown Memorial Park on the Sunday.

Across the weekend, the two stages will also feature dance-pop duo Confidence Man, Sydney rock favourites You Am I, hip-hop mainstays Horrorshow, much-buzzed indie rock band Rolling Blackouts C.F. as well as Stella Donnelly, Touch Sensitive, JessB and Private Function.

While King Street Crawl is historically a free event, the Camperdown Memorial Park and Sydney Park Amphitheatre showcases will be ticketed. Tickets are on sale now, starting at $55 for a Friday-only past and increasing up to $137 for all three days.

Keep your eyes peeled for the full details as they are unveiled over the next two months.
