Listen Out 2019 will be taking place smack-bang in the middle of spring, on Saturday 5th October.


Listen Out happens every year in the heart of Centennial Park, across the Brazilian Fields near Loch Ave South.


Picture this: Listen Out has just ended, you’ve had the best time of your life, and now you must suffocate in the 10:01pm exodus from Centennial Park, and spend hours on public transport on top of that. Vibe killer or what?!

Never fear - you can keep that happy buzz flowing when you book a bed at Sydney Central YHA!

With a rooftop pool, sauna, on-site café, comfy common areas and a range of room types from private ensuite to multi-share, Sydney Central YHA is your ideal pre and post-Listen Out accommodation.

From Centennial Park, it’s also only a 15-minute drive or 23-minute bus ride (or 50-minute walk if you’re feeling energetic), so you won’t be getting home in the wee hours when you’re exhausted, hangry and in desperate need of a shower.

Sydney Central YHA is also walking distance from the best nightlife hotspots in Sydney such as Surry Hills and Darlinghurst – so whether you’re keen to kick on after the festival or ready to immediately collapse into bed, you can have peace of mind knowing we’re close by!

Sydney Central YHA is also one of the finest budget accommodation options in Sydney – spend less on your crash pad and more on dranks, merch, food trucks and whatever else you want to get up to at Listen Out!


We thought so too.

Kick that pesky FOMO in the butt once and for all, and go ahead and buy your Listen Out 2019 ticket here. You work hard, you’ve earned it!

Once you’ve got that sorted, book your bed at Sydney Central YHA here…and start counting down the days.

See ya October 5! Until then - as Flume would say - keep Holdin’ On.
