It was! That was King Street Crawl, this is King Street Carnival. The offerings for King Street Carnival are ten times what was on offer at King Street Crawl. There will still be a multitude of participating pubs, venues, bars, shops, cafes and spaces offering free entertainment along King Street, Enmore Road and Erskineville Road over the three day period (announcements coming soon). We encourage Crawlers to roam the streets from venue to venue and take in all the incredible live music on offer. If you want to level up with a $50+bf wristband then you can head to the King Street Carnival outdoor stages located in Sydney Park and Camperdown Memorial Rest Park. There you can experience world class entertainment with full festival staging and production, incredible local food offerings, famous inner west craft brewery offerings, kids entertainment and a few extra King Street Carnival surprises.

Yes it does- all ticketed sites are subject to capacity and filled on a first in best dressed basis.

We’d love to hear from you! Get in touch- hello@themusicandboozeco.com.au
