It’s slowly becoming evident that SXSW Sydney is going to be one of the biggest events on the cultural calendar of Sydneysiders. Having announced hundreds of artists, speakers, film premieres, and plenty of offerings in the world of gaming, organisers are now throwing some freebies our way…
Taking over Tumbalong Park, which for those who’re unfamiliar with Sydney, is a short stroll from Darling Harbour, you’ll be able to experience a range of tech demos including augmented reality demo from Jigspace, installations and experiences from Suntory -196, Snapchat and Uber, and a talk from Adam Spencer & Doctor Karl.
Of course, the main event will be the Young Henrys Rock & Roll Circus, which will see our favourite froth-slingers round up a ragtag group of Sydney musos to perform classic tunes that are perfect for that tin-in-the-air sing-along. Plus you can catch Indo dynamo Isyana Sarasvati… Check out the full roster below and head here to get tickets to other SXSW events here:
