Dance your shoes off to sunset with sweet sounds
A festival within a festival, So Frenchy So Chic in the Park is part of Sydney Festival, representing French music, food and wine that combines the style of Paris and the country charm of France.
Live music is from popular French artists – Emilie Simon, La Femme, The Do, and Francois and the Atlas Mountains – sure to get you up and dancing in no time. It's surf rock meets indie pop meets synth pop and futuristic electro pop.
