Parra Opening Party

The Sydney Festival First Night has come a long way since the first time it took over the city in 2008. Having comprehensively left its mark on the Sydney CBD, this year the Festival is taking its pedestrian mojo a little further west for a reprise of last week's street side, entertainment bacchanal. This Saturday the Festival revs up for a second attempt, as Parramatta gets the chance to light up with a Parra Opening Party all its own.

The Sydney Festival First Night has come a long way since the first time it took over the city in 2008. Having comprehensively left its mark on the Sydney CBD, this year the Festival is taking its pedestrian mojo a little further west for a reprise of last week's street side, entertainment bacchanal. This Saturday the Festival revs up for a second attempt, as Parramatta gets the chance to light up with a Parra Opening Party all its own.

Stars of the CBD party return, with action spanning Church Street for As the World Tipped and UK DJ Norman Jay MBE in his open-top red double decker bus of sounds. The Kings School will play host to the music of the Barefoot Divas and Gipsy combo Taraf de Haïdouks and the Koçani Orkestar, while Parra also plays host to a rival Spiegeltent, which will be open for a closer look before filling itself with a week of interesting things. It's not often you get the chance to do it all again, but this year the Sydney Festival takes you back there for another punt at a great night out, every bit as electric as the first time around.
