This year you can expect to see performances by known names such as Chaka Khan, Mike Patton and Lee Ronaldo, just to name a few. Amanda Palmer will be doing ten shows in a row during the festival. You can also see a one-woman show La Voix Humaine by dutch theatre company Toneelgroep Amsterdam – this is for you if you like minimalist theatre and are not too afraid of emotion. Donny Benet & the Donny Benet Show Band, an interactive cinema experience “The Very Near Future”, classical music under the stars “Symphony in The Domain”, the rubber duck (wait, what?) – just a few more things to mention.

“If you are really into your arts, Sydney Festival will not disappoint, with opera, dance, theatre and music acts from across Australia and the world.” says Festival Director, Lieven Bertels.
