Solotel has partnered with the NSW Government’s CBDs Revitalisation Program to produce the ‘Sydney All-Nighter’, a late-night music and entertainment event to be held on Saturday, 17 September.
The event will showcase more than 100 acts across 27 stages in 16 venues, with free entry at each. Venues involved include: Opera Bar; Barangaroo House; Kings Cross Hotel; Paddo Inn; Dusk Club at The Edinburgh Castle Hotel, CBD; Goros, Surry Hills; Darlo Bar, Darlinghurst; The Clock, Surry Hills; The Marly, Newtown; The Bank, Newtown; The Golden Sheaf, Double Bay; The Albion Parramatta, The Erko, Erskineville; Public House Petersham; The Regent, Kingsford; and The Courthouse Hotel, Newtown.
Michael Rodrigues, the NSW 24-Hour Economy Commissioner said that the event demonstrated the ambitions of the CBDs Revitalisation Program.
“Encouraging audiences back into venues is a core objective of this program and I’m thrilled to see so many light up from east to west all at once, thanks to this investment,” Rodrigues commented.
“Live music and entertainment is well and truly back in Sydney and collaboration between the 16 venues and more than 100 artists sets an exciting benchmark for an in-venue music festival. I’m looking forward to checking it out myself.”
Rodrigues’s sentiments were echoed by Alister Henskens, the NSW Minister for Enterprise, Investment and Trade, who said: “The NSW Government’s $50 million CBDs Revitalisation Program is reigniting social connection and economic activity in urban centres across Greater Sydney, Newcastle and Wollongong, through a range of arts, music, food and beverage and cultural events.”
Highlights from the events program include a House of Mince queer party at Darlo Bar, singer-songwriter Montaigne at Opera Bar and a special vinyl record DJ set from Harvey Sutherland at the Rekōdo restaurant and vinyl bar at Barangaroo House.
Elliot Solomon, Solotel’s CEO, believes the line-up showcases the wealth of talent in the city.
“We’ve assembled an incredibly talented and diverse line-up, tailoring each venue’s artist roster to its unique local identity and community,” Solomon explained.
He also took the opportunity to acknowledge the assistance of the NSW Government.
“Solotel is a huge champion of Sydney’s nightlife and we’re enormously grateful for the support of the NSW Government in making this initiative come to life.”
“Sydney All-Nighter was created to encourage people to come out at night and experience the best of Sydney’s vibrant music and nightlife culture from the Cross to Parramatta,” Solomon concluded.
