Last weekend, Sydney saw the commencement of a fresh new celebration of music, food and culture at the recently opened Barangaroo precinct.

Over four weekends and twelve sunsets the event continues on to Sunday 25 February and is aptly named Sunset20°N (sunset twenty degrees north)  which takes inspiration from the site’s namesake, Barangaroo, a strong woman and leader of the Cammeraygal people of Sydney. 

It is with this in mind that the entertainment consists of mainly women. You can expect to hear from Sampa the Great, Wallace, GL, Caiti Baker, Pirra, Mama Kin Spender and the Inner West Voices, Tesse, Tigertown, Tia Gostelow, Thelma Plum, The Morrisons, Okenyo, FlexMami (read our profile with FlexMami here!) Saskwatch and Emily Wurramara – and it’s all free!

Sunset20°N is designed by Yuwaalaraay artist and designer Lucy Simpson of Gaawaa Miyay, who was inspired by the setting of the sun and stories of place which lie embedded in this site.

As well as the wonderful music, you can imbibe in some delicious food and beverages, with each weekend showcasing a different female guest chef.  The food is local, seasonal and pays tribute to the history of the iconic headland, from delicious snacks and Pambula oysters shucked to order, through to meals perfect for a harbourside picnic.
