If you didn't think a Sydney summer sunset could possibly get any better, that's okay — neither did we. But alas, it has. Now you can capitalise on those long summer evenings (thank you, daylight savings) by wining, dining and swaying to live music at Barangaroo Reserve, located in picturesque Gadigal Country.

Enter: Sunset20°North. A celebration of music, food and culture set against the backdrop of Sydney Harbour, which will take place every Friday, Saturday and Sunday in February. Inspired by Barangaroo's namesake, a strong female leader of north Sydney's Cammeraygal people, the event will showcase the best Australian female voices and chefs.

The contemporary music lineup includes hip hop-artist Sampa The Great, folk singer Thelma Plum and Thandi Phoenix's electro beats. And the best part? It's all free. As is the interactive art, designed by Yuwaalaraay artist Lucy Simpson. Explore the large-scale Grandmother Tree as it changes with the sunset, reflecting colours and light across the harbour.

The food on offer will change each week, with guest chefs Claire van Vuuren (Bloodwood), Thi Le (Anchovy), Jane Strode (Fred's) and Analiese Gregory (Franklin) each spending a weekend at the helm. The drinks list will also feature mostly female winemakers and producers, with cocktails crafted from native ingredients and award-winning wine. Overall, expect local, seasonal produce perfect for a harbourside picnic. Did someone say oysters?

Sunset20°North will take place every weekend in February. Festivities kick off at 4pm on Fridays and 2pm on Saturdays and Sundays.
