With an expected attendance of 80,000 eager punters, the festival’s stellar lineup will be spread across five stages, showcasing a wide variety of Sydney’s best live music and entertainment. The eclectic selection of bands illustrates why Newtown Festival is a landmark event on Sydney’s cultural calendar.
