A variety of performances will make their appearance, some are even premieres. At Sydney Festival 2013, Dutch artist Florentijn Hofman’s 15-meter high yellow Rubber Duck made quite the splash in Darling Harbour, so the Sydney Festival allowed it to make a comeback. Residents of Parramatta and its visitors are invited to Parramatta Park to get up close with Sydney’s favorite five-storey yellow bird. In Festival Village, Donny Benét returns to Sydney Festival with his show band to host three Friday nights of free Italo funk disco. Meanwhile outside the Spiegeltent, a grand choice of DJs and bands will hit the Festival Village bandstand to carry your evening on through to the early morning hours.
