Just because the skies are gray and the temperature outside is hovering somewhere close to freezing doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be heading out and seeing some fantastic live music. If you live in Sydney the best way to beat the winter cold is to watch some of the hottest local and national acts at The Winterland Festival.

The Winterland Festival starts today and goes until the end of the month at Carriageworks. Over those four weeks over 100 local and emerging artists will be taking to the stage on Thursdays and Saturdays for a series of free concerts. There’ll also be ice skating, market stalls and arts events throughout the entire time.

Head over to The Winterland Festival site for more details or check out our picks for the best nights for folk music fans:
