Keep Sydney Open is taking back Kings Cross

The anti-lockouts group is throwing a precinct party with Future Classic and more

  • 1 June 2017

Keep Sydney Open is taking back the lockout-affected heart of its city's scene with a Kings Cross precinct party next month.

The multi-venue 'Meet Me In The Cross' will be curated by some of Sydney's favourite crews, including Future Classic, Sweat It Out, Astral People, Heaps Gay, Lovebombs and Zoo Project. A $30 ticket will grant access to seven local haunts, which you can check out via the flyer below.

Central Sydney and Kings Cross have struggled since February 2014 with restrictive lockout and last drinks laws and heavy policing.

In a statement on the event, Keep Sydney Open's Tyson Koh said: "we all know it has suffered in recent times, but the truth is venues are still kicking in the Cross. You can still see great local live bands and dance to amazing music.

"Now it's time to support the venues and artists that make this city great in the best way possible: by having a party."
