In the evening, Hyde Park will be reborn as a vaudevillian playground. Catch a peek of Eddie Perfect's new musical comedy Misanthropology and groove to Nashville's The Dynamites, fronted by soul man Charles Walker. And don't miss iOTA and the cast of Smoke & Mirrors on the Palm Stage. At Chifley Square, New Zealand artist Michel Tuffery M.N.Z.M. presents First Contact, a 12-storey high multi-media projection artwork based on Captain Cook's exploration of the South Pacific. A live soundtrack is provided by DJ NOMAD alongside SouthPacific dancers and drummers. Over at The Domain Nukkan Ya Ruby celebrates the life and music of Ngarrindjeri singer-songwriter Ruby Hunter, with a line-up including Amos Roach, Dave Arden, Paul Kelly, Renee Geyer, Tiddas, Dan Sultan and more joining Archie Roach to celebrate the life and music of one of Australia's music legends. Then Emmylou Harris and her Red Dirt Boys are set to dazzle as they traverse Americana, bluegrass, country and folk. Martin Place will explode with some of the best global sounds, including Hanggai from China's progressive music scene, Senegal's Daara J Family and hip-hop collective Arrested Development.

    Awesome, so many people there, most (all?) of the meetup group turned up. I didn't know much of the music, but we ended up staying in the Domain, and that was pretty feel good chillout. We all broke off into smaller groups of five or so, better to get to know a few people like that.

    Unfortunately my friends and I lost the group in a sea of people within a few minutes. Nonetheless, I look forward to making some new ones next time. Cheers :)

    Nice work Alan, pity the whole pack was already split up the moment we walked in. It was great though we split off into a small group afterwards and grabbed an ultra-late night bite! Catch you all at the next event!

    Hi Suyog,
    Events on Sydney Festival First Night are free. So no need tickets but may need to be there early to get a good spot though.
