Sydney Is Getting a Summer of Free Waterside Gigs

Prepare for your summer to get a whole lot chiller: Merivale and Corona have just announced a slew of A+ Sunday afternoon shows at amazing waterside venues. And the best part? A huge chunk of them are free. Bless 'em. Corona must have a lot of cash to splash, just to make you guys happy. No complaints here.

The Sunday Sundown sessions will be held over 12 Sundays from January 3 to March 20. They'll be going down at Coogee Pavillion rooftop, the ivy Pool Club and The Newport. While Coogee Pavillion has never before hosted music events — which is absolutely cray considering what a beautiful place it is — that's all about to change. Kicking off with a free acoustic set by The Preatures on January 3, the Pavillion will host SAFIA, Dustin Tebbutt and Nicky Night Time with support acts Tyler Touché, JOY., E^ST and Cassian over the coming months.

The Newport which is set to open next month, will also put on a series of free Sunday shows including Gypsy and the Cat, Saskwatch, Asta, Ben Lee and Mansionair, supported variously by Gordi, YesYou, Elizabeth Rose and World Champion. And if you want to splash out a lil, the ivy Pool Club is selling tickets for $20 to Tkay Maidza, KLP, HolyGhost and L D R U. Just remember to bring your togs.

Phew, that's a lot of info to take in. The TL;DR message is this: free/cheap shows, sick lineup, great venues. Summer looking fierce.
