Join us for an intimate series of music performances in one of the city’s most unique spaces, the hammock room at the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Hyde Park Barracks. Originally housing convicts, the hammock room is steeped in history and personal stories.

Experience the hammock room in a different way as you listen to some of our best and brightest musicians in this intimate setting. Can music change the way a space makes you feel? And can a space change the way you interpret music?

Immerse yourself in an audiovisual experience with atmospheric lighting, projected imagery and surround sound. From the comfort of a hammock, soak up the sounds of some of Sydney’s most interesting and diverse artists exploring a range of genres.

Renowned performer Nardi Simpson will take you on a powerful and moving journey through song and storytelling . Accompanied by a keyboardist, Nardi will weave contemporary and traditional song interspersed with personal stories for a truly unforgettable musical experience.

Sunday 26 May: Vazesh

Vazesh is a unique ARIA-nominated collaboration between acclaimed musicians Jeremy Rose (saxophone), Hamed Sadeghi (Persian tar) and Lloyd Swanton (bass). The trio will explore long-form improvisation driven by spontaneous compositions that are inspired by their own varied personal musical inspirations. Join us for an unmissable live performance.

Sunday 23 June: Joseph Tawardos

Eight-time ARIA Award-winning artist Joseph Tawadros challenges traditional musical forms by seamlessly blending elements of western classical, jazz, world, folk and even metal and bluegrass. The acclaimed composer and oud virtuoso’s performance will feature work that ranges from thrilling and furiously paced to introspective and tranquil.

Kick off the night with a drink from the Archie Rose Distillery Co bar in the Hyde Park Barracks courtyard between 5pm-6pm before heading up into the hammock room.
