One of Sydney’s biggest and most beloved annual events, Newtown Festival is set to return to Camperdown Memorial Rest Park for a day of music, markets, food and fun on Sunday, 13 November 2016.
Hosted by Newtown Neighbourhood Centre, the non-profit event aims to raise much-needed funds to support people at risk of homelessness in the inner west and to protect the ‘Newtown vibe’.
This year’s event boasts the largest and most diverse music program in the history of the festival, with four stages and more than 40 up-and-coming and established acts – from rap to rockabilly, world music to dance, kids’ disco to DJs – including The Griswolds, L-fresh the Lion, All Our Exes Live in Texas, Fortunes and more.
Longstanding festival favourite, the Writers Tent, hosted by independent bookshop Better Read Than Dead, will be in full swing from 10am to 6pm with an amazing line-up of talks by Australia’s leading writers, including Holly Throsby, Jane Caro, David Hunt, Melina Marchetta and more.
Furry friends will also be on show at the much-loved Newtown Festival Dog Show hosted by Sassy Treats from 9.30am.
The festival is set to be more delicious than ever, with more than 40 food stalls across the park and restaurant collective Newtown Locals returning with the likes of Bloodwood, Marys, Stanbuli and Continental Deli (to name a few) to create five delicious dishes for just $10 each.
Entry is by donation at the gate via cash or PayPass, with all proceeds supporting Newtown Neighbourhood Centre. Check out the full program at www.newtownfestival.org.WHAT: Newtown Festival 2016
