WEEKEND EVENT ALERT; Divine Steps Festival: Sydney Comes Together as One
This Sunday, 10 November, will see Sydney experience its first ever multi-faith music festival “Divine Steps” at Pyrmont Bay Park with over 5,000 people expected.
It would be wonderful to have you cover the event where we will have a Media Tent and volunteers that will be happy to take you around the festival to capture some great photos – including turban tying, a community kitchen serving free food for over 3,000 people and a stall selling pre-loved Indian clothing and accessories for charity.
Plus hot off the press, we have hip-hop artist L-Fresh The Lion performing as four parliamentarians (Julian Lesser, Michelle Rowland, Geoff Lee and Gurmesh Singh) welcome bike riders on the completion of a 240km charity ride from Canberra to Sydney. It will be a moment to capture with loud Punjabi drumming at the arrival point at 1:30pm.
The Divine Steps Festival was launched by Steve Waugh AO last week and is being held to commemorate the 550th birth anniversary of Guru Nanak the founder of the Sikh faith.
The event alert below provides further information. Please let me know if you require any further information. I’d be happy to organise interviews as required prior to the festival or on the day.
