After one humdinger of a debut year, Young Henrys are bringing back their highly successful celebration of all things inner west Sydney: Small World Festival. The event pairs their beloved craft beer with some of Sydney's best live bands and the inner west's most beloved food joints, and this year, Young Henrys have turned it to 11.

Locked in for Saturday, September 19, at a new location at Sydney Park, Alexandria, Small Worlds will see Australian rock royalty The Church headline one heck of an Aussie bill. Formed in the inner west some 35 years ago, The Church will be burling out everything from 'Under the Milky Way' to new album gems.

They'll be joined by Brisbane's face-melting lads DZ Deathrays, Sydney's long-labouring electronic barons PVT (celebrating ten years since releasing debut album Make Me Love You), Sydney supergroup Jack Ladder and the Dreamlanders (Jack Ladder, Kirin J. Callinan, Laurence Pike and Donny Benet), beloved wailers PALMS, haunting foursome All Our Exes Live In Texas, a SPOD-fronted Bon Scott era ACDC cover band called Bon Voyage and more. Plus, monthly artist showcasers VISIONS will kick things off with a mystery happening, and there'll be special guest DJs aplenty including Ro Sham Bo member and Sydney legend Moriarty, Dom Alessio of triple j's Home and Hosed, Cash Sisters, FBi’s Shag and folks from Sydney label Rice Is Nice.

Making sure you fill your belly between sets, the inner west's leading culinary crews are bringing their nosh to Small World. Bloodwood will be doing prawn, pastrami and slaw rolls ($10), polenta chips with gorgonzola sauce ($5) and saffron dumplings with kefir cream ($5). Cornersmith plans to serve up smoked fish and spring slaw pockets ($12), their own signature waffles with salted whey caramel ($8) and pickles on sticks ($2). Porteno will be going old-school with grilled snag sandwiches with jack cheese ($12), or roast pork belly with barbecued savoy slaw and thousand island sauce ($12). Black Betty BBQ will have pulled pork and brisket rolls aplenty ($12 each), alongside Buffalo tater tots ($8). Local legends Mary’s will be cooking up their famous burgers and fried chicken wings on the day, and of course, Young Henrys will keep punters well quenched on the day with their celebrated brews and Noble Cut gin.
