Young Henrys' Rock & Roll Circus: A Musical Extravaganza at SXSW Sydney

Experience the ultimate musical celebration at Young Henrys' Rock & Roll Circus, part of SXSW Sydney® 2023

In a vibrant fusion of music, culture, and craft beverages, Young Henrys, the crowned musos of the Inner West and legendary beer lords, are set to kick off the music offerings at Australia’s largest music, screen games, and technology conference and festival, SXSW Sydney® 2023. As the official Music Festival Major Sponsor, Young Henrys is all set to grace the outdoor stage of Tumbalong Park on Wednesday, October 18, with their much-celebrated Rock & Roll Circus. This year promises to be its grandest iteration yet, featuring an exciting lineup of both Australian and international artists belting out some of the nation’s favorite rock & roll classics. It’s an event that should firmly find a place on your social calendar.

The Rock & Roll Circus at SXSW Sydney® 2023 marks another exciting chapter in the partnership between these two cultural institutions. While SXSW Sydney® is relatively new to the scene, Young Henrys has been an integral part of the Inner West community for years. To kick things off, they’ve released limited-edition, festival-themed Newtowners, encapsulating the spirit of the event. Young Henrys and SXSW Sydney® are committed to serving Sydney’s culture creators, artists, musicians, hospitality professionals, and local legends, promising a week filled with magical moments.

The musical extravaganza will feature an all-star lineup, with Young Henrys’ friends such as Dan Sultan, Wallice (US), Ben Marwe (Bad Dreems), Hayley Mary, Tyne-James Organ, Emmy Mack (RedHook), Jamie Timony (These New South Whales), Zoe Catterall (The Buoys), Zeppelin Hamilton (Velvet Trip), Annie Hamilton, and Dante Knows gracing the stage alongside the YH House Band, comprised of members from The Preatures, The Delta Riggs, and True Vibenation. Adding to the excitement, this year’s host is the affable Fitzy, ensuring that the Rock & Roll Circus will be bigger and better than ever before.

Oscar McMahon, Co-Founder and Director of Young Henrys, expressed his enthusiasm for the event, saying, “Young Henrys Rock & Roll Circus is a musical event we have been throwing for nearly 7 years now. It sees our various friends from all manners of the musical realm coming together to collaborate and have fun on a communal stage. We are so proud to be able to bring this awesome celebration of music and mates to the very first SXSW Sydney and for the crowds of Tumbalong Park in Darling Harbour to be treated to a stellar line-up of national and international guests, enjoying the expression of music together.”

For those who appreciate the best of Aussie rock and warm hospitality, Young Henrys has you covered. They’ll be taking up residence at Tumbalong Park throughout the week-long festival from October 15 to October 22. As the official beer, cider, and ginger beer sponsors of SXSW Sydney® 2023, you can expect nothing but the finest craft beverages from the local neighborhood.

In the true spirit of SXSW®, Young Henrys will also be announcing surprise guests to join the lineup in the days leading up to the show.
