Adelaide Festival 2023

Adelaide

The Adelaide Festival is the iconic performing arts festival internationally recognised as Australia's pre-eminent arts festival. Enjoyed amid warm March days and starry nights at the height of South Australia's festival season, Adelaide Festival’s celebration of creative excellence makes for an event of truly epic proportions.

Along with festivals in Edinburgh and Avignon, the Adelaide Festival is often cited as one of the top three festivals in the world, providing audiences with a survey of the most original and acclaimed artists and performing arts organisations working in the world today. The program traverses a striking cross-section of music, theatre, dance, literature and visual art from artists of diverse backgrounds and cultures.

"Every major capital city in Australia has its own arts festival, but ask those who work in the industry and most will tell you the same thing: Adelaide Festival is the big one.
It has a history of attracting the most significant artists in the world. It’s been running since 1960, but its scope is so big it only became an annual event in 2012. Basically, it’s where to go if you want to binge on cutting-edge, high-profile, large-scale international art." - Timeout (2018)

"More than any other Australian festival of its kind, it offers a place for cultural and intellectual nourishment, a sense of gathering and of community." - The Australian
