First in, best dressed

As this is a popular and free event, we expect the venue to reach maximum capacity at some points during the festival. This means you might have to queue up on the day even if you have reserved a ticket. We recommend you come in early not to miss your favourite artist. We look forward to seeing you at New Beginnings Festival!

Register your attendance here.


Thanks to our partners and supporters for making New Beginning Festival 2024 possible: Australian National Maritime Museum, Allianz Australia, Smartraveller, Sydney Festival and Mundo Institute.
