Parramatta Park

The Crescent

Forming a natural amphitheatre on the Parramatta River, The Crescent features a 42,000 m2, purpose-built and efficient space for major events including concerts, music festivals and stage performances for up to 18,000 people.

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. This is known as The Crescent Summer Series.

Over the decades, The Crescent has hosted such Australian legends such as John Farnham, Midnight Oil, You am I, Spider Bait and large-scale events such as Harvest, Symphony Under the Stars with Sydney Festival and City of Parramatta’s annual Australia Day concerts. 


See [F4] on our Park Map.

Site capacity

The Crescent will hold 18,000 people with space for 1000 seats on the paved stage platform.

Power and inclusions

Part of the $6 million infrastructure project behind the Crescent's current fit-out is a high quality 2,485 m2 stage platform that allows 160 degree viewing for the audience.

Power consists of 2 x 400 amps stage power plus 5 cabinets around the event space - each with 2 x 32 amp 3 phase and 2 x 15 amp GPO outlets to service food and beverage operations.

In addition there is capacity for plumbed toilets and water points.
