Adelaide is Australia’s festival capital for a reason. No matter the time of year, there is something for everyone in South Australia.
Like good food, Adelaide’s festivals are seasonal. The 2023 Summer Festival season is sure to deliver unbeatable and unforgettable experiences.
Established in 2012, Festival City Adelaide is the peak body for South Australia’s festivals and events. FCA's vision is that Adelaide is recognised nationally and internationally as Australia’s Festival Capital.
An example is Adelaide Festival, which in its 38th year in 2023, will offer a total of 52 events in theatre, music, opera, dance, media and visual arts. It also includes major festivals-within-the-festival Adelaide Writers’ Week, UKARIA Chamber Landscapes and WOMADelaide – over 17 days and nights from Friday 3 to Sunday 19 March.
In this segment, we hear from Justyna Jochym, Chief Executive of Festival City Adelaide and Ruth Mackenzie, Artistic Director of Adelaide Festival about all things summer festivals in Adelaide.
