Sydney Festival’s ‘Blak Out‘ brings together some of Australia’s most talented First Nations artists to share their incredible stories. Curated by Sydney Festival’s Creative Artist in Residence Jacob Nash, will present three World Premieres alongside a packed wider program of powerful First Nations work.

The program features stories of rock’n’roll legends from the desert, Warumpi Band, of climate change in the Torres Strait, friendship and sisterhood from the big smoke and truths, past and present.

Sharing her third program as Festival Director, Olivia Ansell, said:

Saltwater stories, freshwater stories and the weaving of over one thousand local and international artists. Get ready for a blockbuster summer that speaks to the heart and soul of Sydney – the best harbour city in the world. 2024 offers explosive live music, spellbinding theatre, exquisite dance, electrifying circus and immersive experiences that lift Sydney’s underbelly – see you in January at the Thirsty Mile!
When: 5-28 January 2024
