Amy Shark, The Veronicas, Thelma Plum Lead Sydney’s ELEVATE Festival Lineup

Sydney’s ELEVATE Festival has announced the lineup for its 2023 edition, with Amy Shark, The Veronicas, and Thelma Plum all locked in. The festival will take over Sydney’s harbourside Cahill Expressway from Tuesday, 3rd to Saturday, 7th January, with a bunch of activities planned across the days and nights.

Plum, Shark, and The Veronicas are joined on the lineup by Becca Hatch, Running Touch, Kinder, Mallrat, Client Liaison, Aussie export Betty Who, and more. There’ll also be a Bluey and Bingo street party, with street performers and games populating the freeway.

The Veronicas: ‘Untouched’

The whole ELEVATE Festival is free to the public (but registration is required) with the Cahill Expressway closed to traffic for the duration.

“Whether you are after family-friendly entertainment, afternoon DJ sessions, or high-energy performances by renowned artists as the sun sets and into the night, ELEVATE Sydney will ride the wave of the new year buzz all week long,” NSW Minister for Tourism Ben Franklin said in a statement. “The NSW Government proudly supports events like ELEVATE Sydney that not only turbocharge the local economy, but also serve as a platform for our homegrown stars.”

The festival was first held at the start of 2022, as a way to kickstart the city’s COVID recovery. Registration for tickets is open now through the website.
