27th February 2018
Adelaide is gearing up for yet another roaring Adelaide 500 this weekend. Two decades in the making, the 20th Anniversary of the Adelaide 500 is set to be an unforgettable four days of action-packed motorsport and entertainment. The program will excite any V8 Supercar fan showcasing superior motor racing, demonstrations and stunt shows. But the show doesn’t end when the sun goes down, with a stellar line up of nightly concerts drawing legends Cold Chisel, Birds of Tokyo and UK superstar Robbie Williams to town! This is the one not to miss!
If you’re looking for the wildest festival ride of your life, then get along to the Adelaide Fringe. For 31 magical days and nights the Adelaide Fringe Festival completely takes over Adelaide, surrounding suburbs and even some regional areas of South Australia.
The Adelaide Fringe Festival is now the largest arts festival in the Southern Hemisphere, boasting an enormous program and reaching a broad demographic. Venues big and small, pop-up and permanent house thousands of artists from all over Adelaide, Australia and the world, so you’re bound to stumble across some Fringe goodness whether that be in a tent, a pub, a laundromat or even an abandoned hospital for the gutsy.
The diversity of acts is astounding and ranges from stand-up comedy acts in a local coffee shop to travelling theatre shows performing to large groups in a beautiful garden setting. If you’re into all things theatre, including comedy, cabaret, magic and dance, pay a visit to the Garden of Unearthly Delights or surrounding Fringe Festival venues this Mad March and experience the vibrancy of the Adelaide Fringe Festival.
There is something for everyone during the Fringe and you don’t have to break the bank to get amongst the festivities, with many shows free to attend or costing as little as $5 on the door.
Each year the Garden of Unearthly Delights creates a unique festival playground including multiple performance venues, bars, carnival rides, an array of world foods, market stalls, and the most unexpected sideshow surprises.
It truly is the most spectacular, wild and wacky set up that will have you feeling as if you’ve just stepped onto a carnival movie set. The garden is free to enter so don’t be afraid to wander through, enjoy the wonderful range of food stalls or purchase a ticket to a Fringe show from the box office.
RCC is one of the largest venues of the Adelaide Fringe Festival with performance venues, food and entertainment set out along the Riverbank at Pinky Flat. Supporting local pop-up bars and food vendors the RCC crew do a wild job of making sure you won’t go hungry or thirsty! They also guarantee an impressive line up of artists taking to the Big River Motel stage every weekend.. this weekend check out Slum Sociable and Ali Barter! After the show, venture into the Neon Forest for late night dancing and well, lots of neon lights (and paint).
