The Sydney Festival is the city’s major celebration of arts and culture, spread throughout January each year. We strongly encourage our APOS attendees to come a little earlier to take full advantage of the festival to enjoy the city at its best. Many of these events are free and the city really comes to life. For those spectacular shows and events that are not free, please note it is wise to book many key events a few months in advance, the year before through the festival’s webpage once it is open.
Some of these events now spill into February right through the conference, though of course we do recommend attending all the technical sessions!
