Cockatoo Island is Sydney Harbour’s largest island and has been a former prison, reformatory for wayward girls and a shipbuilding yard. The industrial and maritime landscape together with the picturesque backdrop of Sydney Harbour make this urban island the perfect setting for this unique event.
The full line-up for All Tomorrow’s Parties at Cockatoo Island will be announced on November 5, along with the Sydney Festival 2009 program. Tickets will be on sale on Monday November 10 at 9.00am.
