The Barracks on North Head is a historically significant and treasured space on the doorstep of Sydney that will have a new lease of life in Autumn this year with the announcement of this all-star concert series over 20 nights.

Organisers say the event, the first of its kind in this open performance space, will provide employment to more than 650 performers and event professionals.  They are working closely with local businesses, including hospitality, transport, and tourism providers, to bring money into the Beaches’ economy.

The event is supported by the Federal Government RISE Fund, Destination NSW and Northern Beaches Council.  This unique series of concerts presents an opportunity to generate income that can be used to maintain and repair the site.  To create jobs and income for the Arts and Entertainment industry which has been dramatically affected by COVID-19 and to respect the history and environmental preciousness of the site.
