Sydney is filled with excellent live music venues, so standing out among the plethora of stellar spots can be tough. But the brains behind the city's latest large-scale music program have managed to make their mark by unlocking a completely underused cliffside venue for their venture: The Barracks Precinct in North Head.

From Friday, September 9 till Sunday, October 9, you and your crew can experience incredible live shows just up the road from Manly CBD at Night at The Barracks. The music program is broad and includes much-loved artists such as Jessica Mauboy, Josh Pyke, Emma Donovan and The Putbacks, Something for Kate, Winston Surfshirt, The Rubens, parody tribute stars Björn Again and more. Plus, Sydney Dance Company will take to the stage in an impressive night of contemporary dance including a performance of its sell-out show Impermanence on Saturday, September 24.

There'll be local food and beverage legends keeping you refreshed on site, as well as exclusive deals for Night at the Barracks guests at nearby restaurants. Make the most of your night in the north with a delicious dinner in Manly before a 20-minute walk to the venue. Or, take the shuttle bus direct to the digs from Manly Wharf and save your energy for grooving instead.

Keen to catch a gig at this impressive venue? Night at The Barracks will take place from Friday, September 9 till Sunday, October 9. To see the full lineup and to book tickets, visit the website.
