Vera Blue, Sampa The Great to play Summer in the Domain concert series

The shows commence in late January

Vera Blue, Sampa The Great, Ball Park Music, Thelma Plum and more artists have been announced for Sydney concert series Summer in the Domain.

Kicking off in late January, Vera Blue will be joined by the Sydney Symphony Orchestra to debut her Everything Is Wonderful show, featuring orchestral arrangements of her discography.

The shows will be hosted at the Domain in Sydney’s Royal Botanic Gardens. Each guest will be allocated a marked-out space to view the performance from, with four and six-person pods also available. More shows are expected to be announced in the future.


“As we know, the impacts from COVID-19 detrimentally impacted the live music, entertainment and events industry and like many organisations and venues across the globe we have all been significantly impacted,” Royal Botanic Gardens’ Damien Comerford said in a statement.

“We have greatly missed the industry professionals we regularly collaborate with and the contagious energy that their productions bring to our public spaces.”

Tickets for the first batch of shows go on sale midday AEDT this Monday (December 21).

Friday 29 – Vera Blue with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra
