“Heart of the Arts”

Every 2nd even-numbered year, all paths will lead to Adelaide when the nation’s most eclectic artistic come together in celebration at the Adelaide Festival of the Arts. Running from late February through to around mid March the event comes alive with live drama, dance and musical events just to name a few of the attractions for Australia’s leading arts festival.

There is a writers’ week, art exhibitions and poetry readings with sought after speakers and performers from around the world. The Fringe Festival, about the same time, features alternative music and performance art. Womadelaide is an outdoor festival of world music and dance which takes place annually in early March.

Other festivals include the Idea’s Festival, Adelaide Cabaret Festival, FEAST, SA Living Artists Week and many more culminating in weeks of the most colourful variety of international humanism to grace our shores.

The Adelaide Fringe is Australia’s biggest arts festival and if that doesn’t impress you enough, it’s the second biggest Fringe in the world (next to Edinburgh). The Fringe is open to any and all artists who wish to join in, which results in a fantastically diverse program. Explore and enjoy.
