  4. Venue Info

    Sydney City Limits takes place at the Brazilian Fields and Parade Grounds at Centennial Park. The luscious 189-hectare park is the emerald heart of Sydney, pulsing with gardens, lush lawns, ancient trees and charming duck ponds.

    Opened in 1888, this green oasis was dubbed the ‘People’s Park’, designed so citizens could “take in the air” away from the town centre.

    It’s certainly lived up to its title – over 100 years later, the park is visited over 20 million times a year and is a beloved hotspot for picnickers, tourists, sports-lovers, horse-riders, cyclists and families.

    Located just five kilometres from the CBD, it offers a sweet escape from the city’s hustle and bustle. It’s a getaway that’s easy to get to, with no road trips, packing or time off required.

    We acknowledge the Gadigal clan of the Eora Nation as the traditional custodians of the country on which the Parklands lies. Please respect your surroundings when attending Sydney City Limits.

  5. Entering The Festival

    Please review the Allowed & Prohibited items list for a stress-free entry process.

  7. Safety & Medical

    We make every effort to create a safe and secure environment on the Festival grounds. On-site security and emergency medical staff will be available at the festival. If you need any assistance, go to the medical tent, or look for a police officer or Festival staff member.

  8. Youth Policy

    To ensure a proper level of security and safety for all attending Sydney City Limits, particularly those who are under 18, we have a Youth Policy in place which forms part of our Conditions of Entry for the event. This policy is in line with several other events around the country.

    All minors aged 15 and under must be accompanied by a parent or responsible guardian ages 25 years or older at the Entry gates (or they may be refused entry) and at all times whilst at the festival.

    Children aged 11 and under are admitted free and must be accompanied by a parent or guardian over the age of 25 at the Entry gates and at all times whilst at the festival. Those aged 12 or older must buy a ticket.

    It is the responsibility of the parent/guardian to ensure that all youth patrons 15 and under accompanying them comply with instructions issued by festival staff. They must also follow any instructions contained in all permanent and temporary signage throughout the festival site.

    Patrons under the age of 18 must not engage in any illegal or disruptive activities whilst on site. This includes underage drinking, use of illicit substances or any generally disruptive behaviour.

    Any breach of these conditions may result in the eviction of the parent/guardian and all accompanying minors from the festival site.

    If you are an adult planning to accompany any minors atSydney City Limits, please ask yourself the following questions if relevant to you:

    1) Can I moderate my alcohol intake so that I can responsibly take care of any minors in my care? 2) Can I still enjoy Sydney City Limits with minors in tow? If you’ve answered ‘no’ to either question you might need to re-think whether you are the right person to be accompanying minors at Sydney City Limits festival.

    Anyone who is considering being the nominated adult in such circumstances should consider this responsibility very carefully.

    The festival may require adults and minors to sign an Accompanied Minor Form so that in the event of an incident we will have details on record.
