Leave your stress back in 2017!

Whether you’re a dancefloor animal, a local foodie, or just like to kick back and have a few laughs with friends and low-key celebrate, NYE in the Park – in the lush gardens of Victoria Park, Camperdown –  will provide the perfect environment to celebrate the new year in Sydney.

You’ve got an awesome night ahead of you, jam-packed with electrifying performances from legends of the global club scene like Tiga and 2manydjs, and leading Australian artists Vera Blue, Northeast Party House and heaps more, with time-travelling DJ sensation Hot Dub Time Machine playing the midnight set, where he will take audiences on a journey through “the best songs of all time”, chronologically from the 50s – 2017.

There will be 10+ gourmet food trucks, plenty of bars, and space to picnic earlier in the day, and spread your wings on Victoria Park’s lush green lawn dancefloor.

If you haven’t locked down a ticket yet, do so sooner rather than later.

To ensure the last day of 2017 goes off without a hitch, here’s some handy info:
