Surry Hills Festival has unveiled its music lineup for 2018, before the annual arts event returns to Sydney this September.
A number of First Nations performers are featured on the lineup, and this year’s festival will be emceed by Koori Radio‘s Gavin Ivey and NITV‘s Emily Nicol. The curated Pop Up Stage, featuring artists from the Australian Institute of Music (AIM), is also returning this year.

Surry Hills Festival 2018 will take place across Ward Park, Devonshire Street, Shannon Reserve, Crown Street, laneways, pop up spaces, local venues and creative spaces in and around Surry Hills.
“Surry Hills Festival is a local Sydney community focused event, when programming I felt it was important to showcase and support artists from within the Sydney region and surrounds,” says the event’s Live Music Program Director, Michael Hutchings.
“Their music is integral to the soundtrack of the city and the lineup not only reflects the high quality of Sydney contemporary music and art but also its cultural diversity and vibrant musical heart.”
Organisers are also promising free guided tours, food and art throughout the day, with all funds raised going towards supporting community programs presented by the Surry Hills Neighbourhood Centre.
