About The Plot

    The Plot is about a community.

    It’s about everyone who is part of the event being the community — including the artists, our audience, our partners supplying premium produce (food and beverages), suppliers and stakeholders.

    We are creating a space (both online and at the festival) for everyone to tell their stories, add to their experiences and make their own fun.

    Set across three-stages upon the Monument grasslands of Parramatta Park and across from Old Government House on Saturday 5 December 2015. The Plot is a one-day celebration in Sydney’s greater west that brings together you (our Plotters), new friends, premium produce and music from an eclectic selection of artist’s from diverse backgrounds across Australia and the world.

    The Plot is an 18+ event only.
