Sophisticated Garden Party
For the first time, the So French, So Chic festival concert is in Sydney. On the 18th of January, the lawns of St John's College within the picturesque grounds of Sydney University will be transformed for a day long festival of the best in French music, food and of course, wine.
So grab a ticket, and note that with generosity, children under 12 are free, so the whole family can enjoy the day. Pack a picnic or buy one there, and settle back for some dancing on the grass.
Highlights musically include the folk-pop singer, Lou Doillon, Lilly Wood & the Prick, the ska/reggae festival favourites Babylon Circus and my absolute favourite, Fefe. If you haven't seen Fefe, I guarantee he will charm the crowd with his infectious enthusiasm and joy. Musically, there is something for all tastes, but expect to delight in the discovery of new styles.
Better than telling you about it, have a listen and decide for yourself!
In terms of what to bring, it's all weather and food is allowed but please note: Strictly no BYO alcohol or glass bottles; this event is fully licensed. Also no glassware, metal cutlery, tents, high back folding chairs, video or recording equipment and no pets. Note also that the ticket price includes a free shuttle bus to Central from 6pm to 9.30pm.
Tickets will be available at the gate but to be safe, buy online.
So join the big garden party, play games on the lawns or dance away the day. By the end of the concert, you're bound to be cheering Viva la France!
Lou Dillon has been hospitalised and unable to travel but Fefe and Babylon Circus will fill her spot by combining together for an extra set (which will be very impressive, if you ask me) and Edward Deer is opening the afternoon...
