Live at Barrack Street
YCK Laneways are taking over a CBD street for a night of live music and cocktails.
Over the past five weeks, Sydney's CBD has been activated with art and entertainment across York, Clarence and Kent Street as part of the YCK Laneways Block Party. The blockbuster autumn event was created to help launch these three city streets as a new cultural precinct that encompasses some of Sydney's most beloved venues. While the six-week party had to endure restrictions on singing and dancing, it has seen everything from antipasto burlesque and poetry readings; to live music and fire twirling pop-up around the CBD.
Now, just as restrictions have been eased, the block party will celebrate its final week with a pop-up street party featuring live music and cocktails. The mid-week concert will take over Barrack Street on Wednesday, May 19 with live sets from indie-pop crooner Jarryd James, much-buzzed NSW up-and-comer Budjerah and Melbourne singer-songwriter D'Arcy Spiller. DJ Levins of Heaps Decent and Halfway Crooks will be on DJ duty from 5pm before the live sets kick off at 7pm.
A pop-up bar from Fever Tree will be on hand to liven up Barrack Street with Patron tequila and Bombay gin cocktails.
Attendees can also continue the party next time they're in the YCK precinct, with all ticketholders receiving 50 percent off their first cocktail at participating YCK venues including Since I Left You, Prince of York, Sammy Junior, Burrow Bar and Papa Gede's.
