Over twelve spectacular sunsets this February, Sunset20°N [sunset twenty degrees north] celebrates music, food and culture in Sydney’s spectacular Barangaroo Reserve. Sunset20°N is Sydney’s newest location to enjoy live music, located in breathtaking Gadigal Country.
Independent and strong, Sunset20°N takes inspiration from the site’s namesake, Barangaroo, a strong woman and leader of the Cammeraygal people of Sydney. Experience a diverse line-up of mostly female artists from around Australia. In order of appearance, Sampa the Great, Wallace, GL, Caiti Baker, Pirra, Mama Kin Spender and the Inner West Voices, Tesse, Tigertown, Tia Gostelow, Thelma Plum, The Morrisons, Okenyo, Saskwatch and Emily Wurramara – and it’s all free!
Sunset20°N is designed by Yuwaalaraay artist and designer Lucy Simpson of Gaawaa Miyay, drawing inspiration from the setting of the sun and stories of place which lie embedded in this site. Families will love exploring the Grandmother Tree, a large-scale interactive artwork created by Lucy Simpson and Archrival, a not-for-profit architecture organisation. The Grandmother Tree is a meeting place for visitors to Sunset20°N, inspired by Cammeraygal story and the beautiful angophora (Sydney Red Gum), creating an unforgettable experience which plays with light, colour and movement, casting a dramatic filter across the harbour to views of iconic Sydney skyline.
Sunset20°N will offer delicious food and beverages, with each weekend showcasing a different female guest chef. Curated by Claire Van Vuuren (Bloodwood, Popla), the changing menus will be designed by Jane Strode (Fred’s, Sydney), Analiese Gregory (Franklin, Hobart) and Thi Lee (Anchovy, Melbourne). The food will be local, seasonal and pay tribute to the history of the iconic headland, from delicious snacks and Pambula oysters shucked to order, through to meals perfect for a harbourside picnic.

AMNPLIFY – DB
My nickname is “The Amnplifier”. Why? Because around here my focus is on being a conduit for providing greater outcomes that people come here for. My day to day “work” is living in the moment, and I love helping others concentrate on finding their connection to themselves through their experiences.
Why start a music environment? The truth is I love music, I love writing, and I love life. I work with musicians every day, and I feel certain that I will be until they put me in the ground. I have been managing people in businesses of some sort for over thirty five years so along the way I have developed some “wisdom” from my regular and constant “observations”.
Amnplify your experience. That is what we want you to do here, and if you want to let me know why you do, or don’t, shoot me a message on Facebook.
Hope you enjoy yourself here and find something that hits you somewhere.
