Night At The Barracks announces 2022 program

Night At The Barracks announces 2022 program

Sydney's newest outdoor venue The Barracks is here – and what better way to make an entrance than with 20 nights of music and performance? That's right, Night At The Barracks is set to land in early 2022 with a program that is not to be missed.


Due to the extension of the NSW Public Health Order concerning major events and to ensure a wonderful experience, the Night at the Barracks team have today made the difficult decision to postpone the concert series until September/October 2022.

Our primary concern is the health and safety of our audiences, artists, sponsors and team members. With ongoing unpredictability due to Covid-19, we feel it is the safest and most proactive decision to move to new dates in Spring with an absolute commitment of providing Manly and the broader community this world-class event.

We can't wait to host you in Spring for a concert series like no other under the night sky at North Head, Manly whilst experiencing some of Australia's most extraordinary talent.
