After Sydney City Limits revealed its first food line-up earlier this year, one thing became clear: music festivals are serving better food than ever before.

There’s now further incentive to buy a ticket (if you don’t care for Phoenix, Beck or one of the other 30 or so acts on the bill, that is): the chance to eat more food from this city’s top chefs.

Curated by the team behind Mary’s, the second menu line-up has been released – and it’s good.

Natural-wine enthusiasts behind Newtown’s P&V Wine and Liquor Merchants, Mike Bennie (Rootstock) and Lou Dowling of Mary’s, will be hosting a natural-wine party (with natural wine on tap), while Longrain will serve South East Asian-style curries with noodle dishes.

Mr. Wong head chef Dan Hong’s mum, Angie Hong, (who taught him how to cook) will take care of the Vietnamese street food, and the Lansdowne Hotel will dish up deep-dish, Detroit-style pizza.

Chef O Tama Carey is bringing her Sri Lankan hoppers to the event; from eggplant with kefir mascarpone and pickled green chillies; to saucy lamb hoppers topped with pol sambol. Tamarind cordial and love cake will also be on offer.
