Sydney Festival returns 9-27 January 2019 with a broad range of free events and accessible pricing policies for ticketed events, making Sydney Festival welcoming to both locals and visitors alike.

Here's our Top Picks of the 2019 Sydney Festival program:

Orquesta Akokán | 15 & 16 January
Cuba's finest musicians bring their big band mambo sound to Sydney in an Australian exclusive. Celebrating the music and culture of Havana of the 1940's and 50's, get ready to shimmy through the night to Orquesta Akokán.

Dust | 9-13 January
Dancenorth perform a stunning new contemporary dance piece which invites you to consider how we scrutinise the past in order to shape the future. Be mesmerised by Dust during their world premiere season.

Shànghai MiMi | 10-20 January
Immerse yourself in the intoxicating world of Shànghai MiMi for an evening of sumptuous cabaret and burlesque. Inspired by 1930's Shanghai, a city famous for its flamboyant clubs and heady nights, Director and performer Moira Finucane is joined by Qinghai Acrobatic Troupe and a live band playing long-lost vintage Chinese jazz and blues.

Neneh Cherry | 15 & 16 January
Swedish icon Neneh Cherry is one of this year's musical highlights, returning with her anthems of trip hop, house, jazz and rap, featuring songs from her impressive career spanning 35 years in the music industry.

Home | 9-18 January
On an empty stage, a house rises before your eyes. People move in, move out. Haunting one habitat, their domestic dance is an overlapping map of successive generations. Inspired by Creator Geoff Sobelle discovery of layer upon layer of kitchen floor, laid by former residents of his 100-year old Philadelphia house. What makes a house a home, he wondered?
