“As the longest night of the year approaches, South Eveleigh’s historic Locomotive Street is transforming into a hub of music, art, food and culture.” Broadsheet
Celebrating winter’s longest night, Sydney’s newest inner-city food and beverage hub, South Eveleigh, hosted a two-day street festival that fused performance, art installations, music, food and drinks.
It was also the first-ever public event for the historic Locomotive Street, the site of Sydney’s first railway. Sold-out crowds flooded in to see genre-bending prodigy Genisis Owusu throw down alongside electro-pop pioneers Pnau, Korean hip-hop renegades 1300, First Nations rising star Pricie and the best sound system this side of 2020.
Revellers were able to drink and dine their way into the night. National treasure Kylie Kwong served up a bespoke menu at her latest outpost, Lucky Kwong, with curated zero-waste beverage offerings from RE. There was also offerings from Tokyo ramen house RaraChan, pho aficionados Eat-Fuh and much-hyped Anita Gelato.
