Running from 27 February – 15 March, the Adelaide Festival 2015 includes Adelaide Writers Week, celebrating all things arts and literature. Adelaide has often been described as a perfect festival city and the Adelaide Festival has made South Australia the festival state for more than 50 years.
Look forward to world class music, theatre, dance and visual arts from Australia’s best new talent along with some great international acts. It all kicks off with the free opening party atElder Park on Friday February 5, starting with a major dining event at Fork on the Rd, and followed by the switching on of the Blinc outdoor digital art gallery, marked by a fireworks display. Blinc promises to be an exhibition to return to through the festival, with laser works, interactive experiences and other technical displays from top contemporary artists
Some other programme highlights include:
It’s been 13 years since the Scottish group were last in Adelaide, and Mogwai are sure to return to massive crowds hungry for their explosive post-rock live show.
