In January each year Sydney lights up with the Sydney Festival: three weeks of art, music, theatre, dance, circus, talks, workshops and other events. It has been running since 1977, with the general aim of celebrating everything that Sydney has to offer. Each year the festival has a theme but the programming schedule is always diverse, and may include anything from Russian ballet and circus performances to Detroit rap. The best news of all? Almost half of the calendar's 150 events will cost you nothing.
When: 7 Jan- 29 Jan
Price: $$ Free and ticketed events
