The freshly prettified Prince Alfred Park will welcome the Surry Hills Festival home this year, along with a killer program of musicians, art installations, pop-up bars, the ever-integral Surry Hills Dog Show and a cool new Sustainability Hub showcasing fresh ways to live green.

With the festival set to draw culture-hungry folks from far beyond the 2010 postcode to the sprawling grounds there really is something for everyone. Food, drink and dog-related details are still being drip-fed as October 27 draws closer, but for now you can get excited about the always inventive arts installations and just-updated musical line-up.

Those who like their art interactive will find plenty to submerge themselves in, including a Tent City brimming with Frida Kahlo lookalikes out to change the world (or at least Surry Hills), a Derivan paint-by-numbers art tunnel and a big ol' rib cage to cosy up in. Or just take a step back and watch street art take shape then trip out over this buzzy tree. See the full arts lineup here.

Regarding the day's soundtrack, 2012 will see artists playing across two separate stages and a cozy Chai Temple to provide a satisfying progression of sonic accompaniments for everything from single-origin lattes to craft amber ales. On the main stage headliners Tijuana Cartel will be joined by Fire! Santa Rosa, Fire!True VibenationThe Liberators and Nantes, with the Purple SneakersSoftwar and Slow Blow DJs keeping you on your feet after the sun goes down. Then after the show, it's the afterparty.
