CEO of Solotel Group Elliot Solomon said: “Sydney All Nighter was created to encourage people to come out at night and experience the best of Sydney’s safe and vibrant music and nightlife culture from the Cross to Parramatta. We’ve assembled
an incredibly talented, diverse and inclusive line-up, tailoring each venue’s artist roster to its unique local identity and community. Solotel is a huge champion of Sydney’s nightlife and we’re enormously grateful for the support of the NSW
Government in making this initiative come to life.”
Minister for Enterprise, Investment and Trade Alister Henskens said: “The NSW Government’s $50 million CBDs Revitalisation Program is reigniting social connection and economic activity in urban centres across Greater Sydney, Newcastle and Wollongong, through a range of arts, music, food and beverage and cultural events.”
Michael Rodrigues, 24-Hour Economy Commissioner said: “The CBDs Revitalisation Program has seen some incredible activations so far and this promises to be another. Encouraging audiences back into venues is a core objective of this program
and I’m thrilled to see so many light up from east to west all at once, thanks to this investment.
“Live music and entertainment is well and truly back in Sydney and collaboration between the 16 venues and more than 100 artists sets an exciting benchmark for an in-venue music festival. I’m looking forward to checking it out myself.”
