Hot Jazz Picnic

New South Head Rd

Saturday 25 November 2023 from 12pm to 8pm


Starting from: $79Child: $0

Introducing Hot Jazz Picnic, an exciting new Australian picnic-style, live-performance jazz festival taking place at the enchanting Lyne Park in Rose Bay on 25 November 2023.

Guaranteed to be a day to remember, the inaugural Hot Jazz Picnic hosted by comedy duo SketchShe is a high-spirited celebration of live jazz, spotlighting the world-class talent NSW has to offer, and delivering a sumptuous blend of music and style – all in a casually chic picnic format.  

Dress code: 

Colour block chic. Dress up to get down, in the boldest brightest colours. Hot Jazz Picnic invites guests to turn the dial to maximum vibrancy and wear their most fashionable colour-block attire. 


Supporting Australian Music Month, Hot Jazz Picnic has been curated by ARIA award-winning musician Elana Stone to appeal to both young jazz enthusiasts and good times lovers alike. 

  • Harry James Angus (Cat Empire), has always had the most impressive 'side projects' imaginable. From singing and rapping with hip-hop-inspired Jackson Jackson, playing beautiful, delicate guitar songs or singing and playing riotous Nina Simone-inspired piano with a gospel choir – he is without peer in terms of his ability to master every instrument he turns his hand and mind to. 

  • Dan Barnett and Emma Pask fronting a 14-piece big band is going to be a swing dance spectacular. 

  • The Morrisons have brought bluegrass authenticity to the Sydney live music scene since hosting their first 'Oh Brother, Where Art Thou' shows back in 2013. 

  • Brekky Boy, Katie Thorne and Ruby Jackson are new discoveries which are going to blow minds with their freshness and invention. Brekky Boy has just come back from an epic tour of Europe and Ruby has just performed at Bigsound to much acclaim. 

  • The Vampires are going to bring their delicious roots/reggae jazz originals and Kate Wadey is the Anita O'Day to a 'Jazz on a Summer's Day' vision come true with her sweet, sophisticated sound and swinging band.  


Hot Jazz Picnic is changing the festival food game, by featuring an onsite pop-up picnic providore showcasing the local and artisanal. Guests will be able to curate their own lavish spread, from an array of glorious fare including blooming cheeses, charcuterie, spicy salamis and antipasti. For the extra bougie, bumps of caviar can be washed down with champagne. 

Pop-up bars will be serving the very best aperitivo, champagne and non-alcoholic drinks. The Casamigos truck will be on margarita duties, while Hickson House Distilling Co will be shaking up summery cocktails and showcasing their new Wild Rosé Summer Cup. 

Mary’s Burgers, Sonoma Bakery and Tuckerbox are just some of the other names involved. 

A primo picnic experience is available to VIP ticketholders, with a private VIP Champagne Garden Bar styled by Business & Pleasure Co, and a food and drink service direct to your blanket, powered by Liively. 

As a family-friendly event, children under 12 are free to attend.
