How to activate theme in wp

hey folks,
a strange question. But how do I actually activate the sydney theme to get startet on wp? I have an account and so on but do not find a way to activate the theme!
I know this is a very basic question…
do I have to use the upgraded version of wp or can I activate the theme with the free wp?
thank you!

Hi,

You just need to go to Appearance > Themes > Add New and search for Sydney. This, of course, if you’re running a self-hosted WP and you’re not on wordpress.com.
