With the weather starting to cool in Sydney, it’s time to make the most of the gorgeous days still left before winter kicks in. Keep yourself busy by checking out these fun events and activities.

Sydney Comedy Festival

Need a good laugh? Check out some of the best comedy talent from local and international comedians when they come to town for the 12th annual Sydney Comedy Festival. Running until the 15th of May, check out some great acts performing across the city, including Peter Helliar, musical comedy trio Tripod, and British comedian Stephen K Amos. Not sure what to see? Check out the improv show at the Giant Dwarf or the Sydney Comedy Festival Showcase at The Comedy Store.

Crap Music Rave Party

If you like good music, then this isn’t the event for you.

On May 13-14 at the Oxford Art Factory, DJs will be playing the worst songs imaginable, so start thinking of some requests for the night, or throw your choices up on the Oxford Art Factory Facebook page.
