Music and Entertainment Events
Adelaide rocks, it’s as simple as that. Whether you‘re after a live acoustic gig at the Governor of Hindmarsh (The Gov), a string quartet at the Adelaide Festival Centre or a touring international act at the Adelaide Entertainment Centre, Adelaide has something for your musical taste. There are dozens of boutique music festivals dotted throughout the regions where you can escape for an afternoon of food, wine and song.
What's on now
Melodienacht is a brass band concert unlike any other! Held on the last Friday and Saturday night in May (29 and 30 May) in the Tanunda Show Hall, Tanunda Town Band presents a cabaret extravaganza to over 2,000 people! 2015 will feature Australian stage and television sweetheart Miss Rachael Beck. The concert features full band numbers, soloists from within the band, guest artists, sing-alongs and German OomPah music, all presented in a large tin shed with a shell-grit floor, and seated in groups at long tables.
Adelaide Cabaret Festival
Adelaide Festival Centre's Adelaide Cabaret Festival returns in June with another star-studded program of both international artists and a record number of local artists. 2015 Artistic Director Barry Humphries has brought together some of his music and comedy favourites for your enjoyment - sensuous sirens, charismatic crooners, scandalous storytellers and jovial jesters who are hilarious, naughty, sexy, addictive, outrageous and dangerous - this game of cabaret has no rules. 5 to 20 June.
Masquerade is a new Australian play by award-winning playwright Kate Mulvany, based on the iconic book by Kit Williams, which sold two million copies worldwide in the late 1970s. Featuring rich, fantastical design, knockabout humour, brilliant gypsy-influenced music and a cast of exotic characters, wise-cracking animals and a few mere mortals, this is a magical adventure about the love between parent and child. 20 - 31 May.
