FESTIVAL ALERT: Summer Sundown

SAFIA, Touch Sensitive, Alice Ivy and Clypso will feature in a sultry summer festival in Sydney later this month.

HELD AT Parramatta Park on Tuesday, 25th January, Summer Sundown promises to be the perfect summer holiday celebration for all ages.

The event will also give artists the opportunity to perform after months of lockdowns and cancelled shows.

“It’s been over two years since we’ve had the opportunity to perform in Greater Sydney so as you can imagine we are extremely excited to just get out there & play,” SAFIA said.

“People can expect big production, loud sing-alongs & 3 guys who’ll just be happy to do what they love again!”

Alice Ivy was also “stoked” to be performing at the event: “I’ve been working super hard on a brand new set that will keep you dancing. Live music is back baby!”

Tickets to the event are on sale now via Moshtix.

Below are our top 5 festival tips, to make sure you have the best evening possible!

1. Wear comfortable & supportive shoes. There’s nothing worse than being on your feet for multiple hours at a time, and having the aches and pains of fatigue take away the good times and great vibes. Make sure your shoes are comfortable, supportive, slightly worn in (avoid those painful blisters) and if you’re able to – match your outfit!

2. Get down early! There’s so many incredible acts at any festiva;. Alongside the artists, most events will often have additional entertainment and attractions. By getting down early, you’ll have ample time to make the most of everything on offer at the event – and hopefully you won’t have to jostle for a good position when your favourite artist hits the stage.

3. Plan your transport to and from the venue. By knowing where you enter, exit and the best modes to get there, you’ll be able to make sure you’re on time, and in the right place. When you’re exhausted at the end of the night & all you want to do is make it home, you’ll be able to get there without any stress if you’ve pre-planned your exit strategy!

4. Grab some merch. There’s usually a great selection of merchandise from both the festival and artist performing at any large event. Photos & videos capture great memories, but there is something incredibly tangible about being able to wear a piece of clothing that takes you back to an iconic performance or an amazing evening. Hey, you can even pass it down to your kids when it’s “vintage”!

5. Go with the flow! Festivals can be huge beasts to run and navigate – you might get a little lost, set times may change or artists may be replaced last-minute (we’ve all seen this happen in a post-pandemic world). If you can, just roll with it and enjoy the event for everything that it has to offer. Even a stressful moment can turn into a great post-festival story for years to come!
