Parramatta Park

The Crescent

CrescentSS2017 redboxParramatta Park's spectacular outdoor venue, The Crescent, is one of Sydney's newest and most sought-after major outdoor event spaces.
Forming a natural amphitheatre along Parramatta River, The Crescent is a purpose-built event space designed for concerts, festivals and performances for audiences of up to 18,000.

Some of our biggest rock ‘n roll legends have played there over the years. It’s been home to MTV’s Beats & Eats, the legendary Harvest festival. In 2018, it hosted Tropfest, 50 Cent, FOMO and Symphony Under the Stars, to name just a few.

Following a $6 million infrastructure investment, the Crescent boasts a 2500 m2 paved stage platform, power and water/pump-out points and, in summer, a 20m concert stage and back-of-house, designed as a plug-and-play venue for hire by promoters and festival organisers.

Over the decades, The Crescent has hosted such Australian legends such as John Farnham, Midnight Oil, You Am I and Spiderbait, as well as the City of Parramatta’s annual Australia Day concerts. 

Programming for The Crescent Summer Series includes a mix of free outdoor concerts and ticketed indie electronic festivals, such as FOMO. 

To inquire about booking The Crescent during the Summer Series (November to March) or as a greenfield site (March to November), please email us at or phone (02) 9895 7500.
