The Ten Must-See Events To Catch At Qudos Bank Arena Over The Next Two Months

30 January 2024

Revellers across the country know that Qudos Bank Arena is the site of all the hottest-ticket events. Last year, the iconic Sydney venue played host to an array of live music, sporting, and experience-based events, welcoming a list of artists and organisers so starry it warrants its own constellation. 

While you’d think it’d be tricky for a venue who recently hosted Lizzo, 50 Cent and BLACKPINK to outdo itself, Qudos Bank Arena is poised to do just that this coming year. Sporting legends and musician icons alike are all set to walk the venue’s hallowed halls in early 2024, kickstarting what will undoubtedly be another mammoth year for Australia’s most revered venue. 

With such a bustling event calendar for attendees of all stripes, we’re sifting through the biggest events to catch over February and March, 2024. Head here to see Qudos Bank Arena’s full upcoming event calendar.
