“The organisers promote it as “the best new years ever”, and two years in, it’s hard to disagree.” – 5why
Into their last release of tickets, NYE in the Park today reveal their set times along with surprise inclusion of indie pop favourites The Jungle Giants.
Local legends Hermitude will be counting down to midnight before master of the mix Girl Talk (US) takes over with his signature blend of new hits and crowd pleasers, while The Jungle Giants will hit the main stage at 8:20pm. Fresh off the back of sold out shows in the US, UK and Europe, the energetic indie darlings released their biggest single to date in ‘Heavy Hearted’ this year before a highly demanded eight date national tour.
They join a stacked bill including cinematic electro trio SAFIA, suave throwback duo Client Liaison, festival mainstays Crooked Colours, dance-royalty Bag Raiders, legendary dance-pop pioneers Sneaky Sound System, the Whatslively pop-up DJs and a whole bunch more. They’ll all descend on Victoria Park‘s natural tree-lined amphitheatre to ring in the new year in two weeks time.
Set in the lush oasis of Camperdown’s Victoria Park in a spacious and relaxed setting, NYE in the Park is a mere stroll from the many surrounding train stations and bus routes. Get down early for a summer sunset session and indulge in the diverse and ample pop-up bars, street eat delights and fun in the sun festivities. Following last year’s sold out event, organisers will continue their mission to provide a fuss-free, affordable and fun-filled festival environment, all ending in a crescendo of the festival’s own curated fireworks – the backdrop to its three festival stages.
Knowing all too well the headache Sydney NYE can be, organisers had a clear vision for the event saying “New Year’s in Sydney has always been overcrowded, overpriced and ultimately, under whelming, and we want to change that. The last two years offered a hugely fun, highly affordable, drama-free night out – with ample space to dance, more bars and toilets than you can poke a stick at.”
With the festival into its final release and heading for a sell out, it’s time to make those NYE plans and decide whether it will be a festival ticket, a VIP Garden Experience or VVIP Skydeck.
Grab your mates and ditch the animalistic CBD and escape to the utopia of NYE in the Park for the BEST. NEW YEAR’S. EVER.
