This Weekend In Sydney 20/7

Culture comes in many different forms - and Sydney’s got it all, from pop-culture to protests.


GO: RUFF JUSTICE: SNIFFER DOG PROTEST FESTIVAL

No matter your stance on the use of illicit substances, everyone deserves a fair trial. With morality being policed like never before, people are finding themselves evicted with their tickets torn up (often through no fault of their own) thanks to the use of sniffer dogs at so many of our favourite events. Many of those thrown out are unfairly targeted as part of minority communities, and what’s worse, the pooches aren’t always getting things right. This isn’t about drug use – it’s about justice, safety and saving the music scene. So what’s involved? A bit of debate, dancing and some demands for doggy retirement. Take a stand this Sunday: https://www.facebook.com/events/175246623152837/


PLAY: BROOKLYN NINE NINE QUIZ NIGHT

Showing us a more loveable and fun side of the police, Brooklyn Nine Nine has taken the small screen by storm and captured our frozen little Netflix-obsessed hearts. What better way to show off our knowledge of the series than with a specially-themed quiz night dedicated to Jake, Amy, Rosa and co.? Hosted by Let’s Get Quizzical on Saturday at Paddo RSL, this is a night to remember with a difference – and there’s everything to play for.

PARTY: KRAMPUS IN JULY

Sick of the usual party circuit? Krampus in July could well be for you. With loads of different places getting in on that whole Christmas in July thing, this is basically the answer for people who typically have more in common with Scrooge – or Krampus, the half-goat, half-demon of Christmas instead. Featuring some of the top alternative DJs and dancers in the metal, industrial and dark electro scene and operated by the folks at Incursion at the Burdekin Hotel, this is a night out for people who want to live life loud. Festive cheer optional. Head along on Saturday night: https://www.facebook.com/events/1796039180452945/ 


LEARN: COLOMBIA TRICOLOR 2018

Colombia is a country with a rich cultural history and plenty of exciting traditions – which is why we love the fact that Sydney is getting in on the action in time for the celebrations of Colombia Independence Weekend. Are you ready to party? From Friday to Sunday, Exotik Latin in Newtown will be showcasing everything from delicious native foods to Latin dancing. Find out more: https://www.exotiklatin.com/
