Parramatta Park

The Crescent Summer Series

Parramatta Park's spectacular outdoor venue, The Crescent, is one of Sydney's newest and most sought-after major outdoor event spaces.

Some of our biggest rock ‘n roll legends have played there over the years, it’s been home to MTV’s Beats & Eats, the legendary Harvest festival and in 2017, the top-selling indie/electronic music event, FOMO and Symphony Under the Stars, as part of Sydney Festival. 

Forming a natural amphitheatre alongside the Parramatta River, The Crescent is a purpose-built event space designed for major outdoor concerts, festivals and performances for audiences of up to 18,000.

Following a $6 million infrastructure investment, it boasts a 2500 m2 paved stage platform, power and water/pump-out points and, in summer, a 20m concert stage and back of house, designed as a plug-and-play venue for hire by promoters and festival organisers.

Over the decades, The Crescent has hosted such Australian legends such as John Farnham, Midnight Oil, You am I, Spider Bait and City of Parramatta’s annual Australia Day concerts. 

Programming for The Crescent Summer Series has included a mix of free outdoor concerts and ticketed indie electronic festivals such as FOMO. 

*(Food and beverage outlets, including dedicated bars, and other event-specific infrastructure may be installed by individual hirers/promoters.) 

To inquire about booking The Crescent during the Summer Series (November to March) or as a greenfield site (March to November), please email us at events@ppt.nsw.gov.au or phone (02) 9895 7500.
