Western Sydney Audiences
Western Sydney is driving the growth of cultural arts attendance in NSW. We love big musicals, live concerts, large festivals and visiting art galleries. We enjoy getting together with family and friends to share epic and unforgettable moments, be it at the theatre, concert hall.
We are avid supporters and consumers of entertainment and the arts with an annual spend of over 316m* making our average household spend on tickets, festivals, live performance and special events almost equivalent to our counterparts in other areas of Sydney.
We are professionals with almost 70% of us working in professional, managerial, sales or administrative roles and 23.8% of our households earn $2,500 or more per week. 47% earn over $100K per year. We are only restricted by a real lack of large theatrical venues offering world class shows that are close to where we live
