New KSC 2022 Dates & Lineup Additions!!

King Street Carnival has been rescheduled to new dates in March, taking over Sydney Park Amphitheatre, Camperdown Rest Memorial Park and various Inner West venues from Friday March 11 to Sunday March 13. 

King Street Carnival, as an elevated version of the historic King Street Crawl, honours the vibrant and multicultural layers of the Inner West with a 3-day explosion of music headlined by Yothu Yindi, You Am I, Ngaiire, Middle Kids and some of Australia’s well-loved up-and-coming acts, alongside seeing open air parties from Heaps Gay and Inner West Reggae Disco Machine. Outside of the KSC three-day ticketed offering, are 150 artists performing at over 30 venues, as programmed by the tastemaking party-throwing minds of I OH YOU, Bodega Collective, Evening Records to Third Eye Stimuli and Picnic. 

After several re-schedules and continued restrictions, we are extremely proud to be going ahead in these new dates. It’s a testament to the relentless spirit of the wider artistic community around us that the festival continues to live and thrive, and we couldn’t be more thankful for the support shown to the festival.”

Today, joining the festival’s main programming is a slew of newly added artists including recent APRA Song of the Year nominee Ngaiire, singer-songwriter from Fingal Head Bundjalung, Budjerah, rock and roll gang Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever and acclaimed Melbourne punks & members of The Drones, Tropical Fuck Storm. Additionally, good times producer and DJ extraordinaire Young Franco, DJ and designer from Melbourne Soju Gang, NME Best new Artist King Stingray and pub-rock veterans Cosmic Psychos join the bill as well as many more.
