The CBD has been given an energising refresh this summer thanks to Sunset Piazza, the pop-up concert series that's transformed Cathedral Square into an outdoor cultural hub. Showcasing artists across cabaret, hip hop, comedy and opera — and located right opposite Hyde Park — the temporary gig space is where you can catch performances from both new and seasoned acts this season.

February's lineup has proved popular, with many gigs already sold out. Luckily, Sunset Piazza has just announced some last-minute summer gigs, including a comedy gala on February 26.

For March, you can now nab tickets to see the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Choir who are kicking off the Mardi Gras festivities on Friday, March 5; local singer-songwriter Ruby Fields on March 6; the ever-popular Winston Surfshirt on March 13; a mash-up of musical numbers by way of Hayes Theatre Co on March 14; and Josh Pyke on March 18.

Be sure to arrive early, too, so you can tuck into some cannoli and sip on a spritz as local DJs settle you into the Italian-themed event under balmy evening skies. Of course, there's the global pandemic to be mindful, so expect COVID-safe practises to be in place.

Then, keep the good times going by hitting up local bars or late-night restaurants. Keen to really make a night of it? Book yourself in for a well-deserved staycation at one of the many top hotels around town.

For the full lineup — and to secure your spot — check the Sunset Piazza website. For further Sydney CBD inspiration visit whatson.sydney/rediscover, or head over to www.sydney.com
