The inaugural Sydney Solstice is going out with a bang — a bang that's not only delicious, but that's helping raise money for those in need, too. Third I Fest will see some of the inner west's best restaurants and bars open their doors, so you can go on a globe-hopping culinary adventure — without the plane ticket.

You'll be able to buy a 'passport' that'll let you eat at restaurants, such as Colombo Social, with all money raised going to employment and career opportunities for asylum seekers and Indigenous Australians doing it tough. The three-day event will also feature pop-up art galleries, food and cocktail masterclasses, and an all-day music festival showcasing international, Indigenous and inner west artists (representing the event's three 'i's) on its final day.

The music festival will take over the CBD's Metro Theatre with performances from boundary-pushing hip-hop artists Ziggy Ramo and L Fresh the Lion, alongside Kobie Dee, Thandi Phoenix and Becca Hatch. The festival will also give you the chance to catch exciting new East Arnhem Land band King Stingray in one of their first Sydney shows. The surf-rock band has released two critically acclaimed singles and are related to members of the legendary First Nation's group Yothu Yindi.
