Meriton Festival Village

Head down to the epicentre of Sydney Festival for a drink and a feast, ticketed shows in the Magic Mirrors Spiegeltent, plus free performances and DJs every night.

In the Spiegeltent this year you’ll find everything from the risqué boys of Briefs to the smash-hit Irish cabaret RIOT; music from counter cultural icon Genesis Breyer P-Orridge, dark-folk star Aldous Harding, Mali’s Bassekou Kouyaté and Argentinian trio Fémina; comedy from LORDS OF STRUT and mime Trygve Wakenshaw; and cabaret queen Lady Rizo.

This year, we’re also proud to introduce the Village Sideshow presented by China Southern Airlines, a fun park filled with wild, wonderful and bizarre attractions. Check out the freaky virtual reality Ghost Train or sing a song on the Karaoke Carousel, plus the Village Pools, Glitterbox, Temple of Din pinball artworks, 10 Minute Dance Parties and more.

Magic Mirrors Spiegeltent and bar area are licensed. Under 18s must be accompanied by a responsible adult.

The Magic Mirrors Spiegeltent is General Admission. Seats are not allocated so please arrive early to queue for entry.

Priority Entry tickets allow patrons first entry into the venue. Please arrive at least 15 minutes prior to the performance to ensure early access is possible. If the priority entry time is missed, tickets will be General Admission
