ELEVATE Nights

Thank you Sydney! This event is now closed.

There are only 5 nights a year when you can shut down an expressway and dance on top of a train station with the world’s most beautiful harbour at your feet. And only one city that can make it happen.

Grab your mates and head down to the Quay for a free concert where every night promises killer acts, incredible views and more energy than the sun.

Experience a night that hits different.

More line-up announcements coming soon.

Tickets are free, bookings essential.
