About the Book

Sometimes in Sydney you need to do a bit of work to find the truly excellent things. For a while there it felt like you had to know the secret handshake (always ends in a fist bump) or have a doubloon handy to hold against the skyline to work out the location of a venue that wasn’t going to be shut down by the time you reached it. Lately, however, the city is stirring.
In fact, so many events started popping into the fore each week that a directory of the best was needed online, and so began Concrete Playground. It soon came to our attention that, week-in, week-out, the most culturally interesting things happening aren’t being created by large institutions. More often than not, the events highlighted are put on independently or communally. To celebrate and extend our appreciation we decided to select fifty creative conspirators to showcase in this book.

Concrete Playground is an online weather vane pointing you to the cultural tornadoes that are just about to hit Sydney, Brisbane and Auckland. Updated daily, and with a weekly newsletter that maps out your seven day schedule, it is the work of a collective of writers and social secretaries who have a constant ear to the under and above (but never middle) ground of the cultural world.
