Three more sleeps til we get down in Sydney. Looks like it’ll be a blissful 28 degrees. Sounds sweet! Dress appropriately: wear closed-toe shoes; wear sunscreen. Bring your wallet (there are limited ATMs on site); and be a legend to your fellow festival mates. And have the best time. We can’t wait.
There is no parking at the venue so please leave your cars at home. Free shuttle buses are running after the festival from Balmain Road to Central Station to help get you home. For timetables, maps and trip planning go to transportnsw.info, download the the Transport Info App or call 131 500.
