Following the headline ticketed performances, audiences can keep on dancing into the small hours with Paradiso at Town Hall’s late night after parties until 2am.
Alongside Paradiso at Town Hall’s ticketed events, a new addition to Sydney Festival 2013 is the free-entry Paradiso Bar on the terrace, the perfect place to meet friends for an after-work or pre-show drink. Paradiso Bar is open from 5.30pm, with light hot meals available.
