King Street Carnival — POSTPONED
King Street Crawl has expanded into a three-day festival spread across multiple inner west venues and featuring Yothu Yindi, Confidence Man and Amyl and the Sniffers.
UPDATE, Tuesday, January 4: King Street Carnival has been postponed due to rising COVID-19 case numbers in Sydney. It'll no longer go ahead between Friday, January 14–Sunday, January 16 — we'll update you when new dates are announced.
Before 2020 turned the world upside down, King Street Crawl was a yearly tradition. After taking the last two years off due to COVID-19, 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 run across the weekend Friday, January 14 until Sunday, January 16 throughout Newtown's main road as well as Enmore Road, Erskineville Road, the Sydney Park Amphitheatre and Camperdown Memorial Park.
Heading up the outdoor concerts is legendary group Yothu Yindi who will share the headlining spots with the likes of Hiatus Kaiyote, Sarah Blasko, Middle Kids, Stella Donnelly and Kaiit among others at Camperdown Memorial Park throughout the weekend.
Over at Sydney Park, Horrorshow, Confidence Man and You Am I are topping the bill, accompanied by Jess B, Amyl and the Sniffers, Touch Sensitive and Mildlife. Sydney party mainstays Heaps Gay and Inner West Reggae Disco Machine will also be taking over the park's Brick Pits throughout the weekend.
This year, 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.
