I'm a postgraduate student living in the inner west cities of Sydney, with a passion for food, music and travel.
The Surry Hills festival 2012 will be held on the 27th of October on a Saturday. This year the event will be located at Prince Alfred Park; Chalmers Street, Corner of Cleveland Street Surry Hills, which is conveniently located from Sydney's Central Station.

This year's event has a major lineup in music and is promised to be even greater than last year's festival. From indie electronic favourites; Tijuana Central to Australian Hip Hop music by MC The Tongue. A day filled with over 15 different artists performing on the main stage that will cater to all types of music fans.

It is a family friendly event, catering for all ages, from young to old. Aside from great music lineups, there'll be art exhibitions throughout the day, yoga workshops to get people ready for a great long day, eco living stalls, an area celebrating the indigenous festival, dog show competitions and a creative hub for the little ones.

Kids can enjoy the day with the family as the event has an area catered for the kids in particular. It is a creative hub set amongst the trees, offering arts and craft workshops, face painting kiosks and many fun games. However one of the highlights is the stage created for the kids to showcase their performances. The central stage is by Lolo the Gypsy Caravan, which is a white and red polka dotted caravan. The stage will be showcasing creative kids performances that will impress the not only the little ones but also the adults.

The day will also feature colourful characters that will amuse and entertain the young and the old. A children's festival will also be held on the day in addition to the indigenous festival and Surry Hills bike riding festival.

For those people who can't attend the day event or wish to enjoy a full day of the festival, there will be an official after party held at The Burdekin Hotel on Oxford Street. The party begins at 10pm straight after the festival ends, until 6am the next morning. Tickets can be purchased online via the OzTix Website.

Getting to the Venue
On the day, it is expected to have an excess of 10,000 people, so it is best to travel via public transport;

By Train
The closest station is Central Station or Redfern, and you can enter via one of the park entrances.

By Bus
Sydney Bus to Central Station or bus directly to Chalmers and Cleveland Street

Bicycle Anyone?
Since the day is celebrating the Surry Hills Ride Festival, why not join in and ride your bike to the event. You can meet up with other riders of the day.
There'll also be a bicycle valet service at Prince Alfred Park, so it is quite convenient.

It will be a great day filled with music, food and heaps of kiosk or stalls - an event that caters for all.
