NYE in the Park

Victoria Park

Sydney, Australia

December 31, 2017

There is no shortage of iconic locations that New Years Eve can be celebrated at in Sydney. 

The boutique-y NYE in the Park Festival, curated by the creative heads behind Falcona / Hot Dub Time Machine, descended on the green acreage of Sydney’s Victoria Park, Broadway, for the very first time, this year and added another location to the expanding list.

Victoria Park, located adjacent to the ground of the University of Sydney, served as suitable hosting ground for the festival, which featured a spread of both national and international DJs, bands and entertainers across two stages.

From early afternoon until late night live entertainment was provided by the headliners 2manyDjs from Belgium (of Soulwax fame), turntable luminary Krafty Kuts and Jurrasic 5 rapper Chali2NA, the party proven DJ Hot Dub Time Machine as well as Furnace and the Fundamentals, Australian singer Vera Blue, Northeast Party House, Haiku Hands, Nicole Millar, Running Touch, and about a dozen more acts running the gamut in terms of providing party inducing entertainment.

Gourmet food trucks and bars from a selection of local vendors flanked the stages with an array of offerings and the shindig culminated in a fireworks display at midnight, for which Sydney’s city skyline and the park’s flora provided the backdrop in lieu of the pyrotechnic display at Sydney’s Harbour, which was blocked from view.

With NYE usually being a hectic, crowded and congested affair, the first incarnation of this new event proved that the fundamental elements of having a fun time in an enjoyable, clean and spacious environment, affordable prices, in an great location with quality offerings and a laid back vibe do not have to be mutually exclusive.
