Sydney Solstice

The Longest Night

ATDW Physical Address
Abstract Gallery, 197 Oxford Street, Darlinghurst
Art, Comedy, Music

In the lead up to winter solstice, for the “The Longest Night", join in on a queer reading event in the Abstract Thoughts Gallery next to Café Freda's in Taylor Square. Sydney’s best writers and comedians – simply some of the coolest people you’ll ever meet – will take to the stage to regale you with stories of their iciest queer passions. Think Elsa from Frozen getting down with the White Witch from Narnia, and you’re halfway there. The Iceman Cometh!

Featuring a diverse range of LGBTIQA+ voices, who can be read in the likes of Junkee, The Guardian, The Monthly, and seen on stages across the country and around the world, this is the perfect event for celebrating your inner winter freak. The event will be complimented with a display of visual art from some of Sydney’s leading queer artists, and a chill-wave DJ set to help you get in the mood.


Getting there

Transport Options
Light Rail

Sydney has an excellent public transport network and you can get to all of the Sydney Solstice precincts by bus, train, light rail or ferry. Parking will be limited at most festival venues, so we recommend you travel by public transport rather than driving. Check out our Transport section for more information.
