The first of half of the city’s pop-up stage Sunset Piazza has awoken Sydney’s music scene after a year of pandemic lulls. Sneaky Sound System, Peking Duk and Allday were just a few of the contemporary artists to sell out the concert series.
But if you dig a little deeper, you’ll find that there’s more than just pop music on offer.
Musical theatre, street choirs, poetry and hula are just a few of the stars that will make your next night in the city one to remember.
Rewired on the Piazza is the latest production by Hayes Theatre Co, the home of musical theatre and cabaret. With a mission to change the way you see your favourite musicals forever, 5 extraordinary performers will mash up genre and style, putting their entertaining spin on familiar tunes.
Looking for an electrifying night out? Head to the Piazza on Sunday 14 March for Rewired.
On Thursday 4 March, Sydney’s diverse and talented local performance groups will bring an evening of light-hearted fun and variety to Cathedral Square, with 8 groups performing across the night.
