Sistas with Soul presents the highly anticipated ‘Soul in the Square’ – an outdoor BOXING DAY event with feel good vibes for all ages. The line up includes some of Sydney’s best local artists & DJs, alongside our internationally recognised guests Ahmed Sirour (Brooklyn) and Melbourne’s MZRIZK (Rizky’s Block Party).

The Sistas will be taking over a secret location in inner Sydney (just a 3 minute train ride from Central station) and transforming a never used before venue into a fresh summer party. The day’s soundtrack will cover everything from Reggae to Soul & Funk to Hip Hop.
