New Years Eve 2015 is a time of celebration, time to reflect on the year we are leaving behind as we look forward to the next year, complete with resolutions we may or may not keep. Head out to Federation Square where it's all going to be happening, complete with community spirit, provided for free, as is the event. Be there on 31 December 2015 from 8pm and party the night away till 1am, bringing in the New Year on 1 January 2016.
You'll see some of the best talent on offer from our great city at this concert. Live music, entertainment and city fireworks, cost free, makes it a night to party and celebrate. Treat yourself to some African beats, modern electronic, jazz, Japanese folk, R&B and soul to name a few genres, that'll bring The Square to life.
