Celebrate Summer With Us! Adelaide Festival Centre’s Sunset Sessions

Posted by Adelaide Festival Centre on Thursday 14 December 2017

You’re invited to a special live music series, Sunset Sessions, which is free for all to enjoy this summer from Adelaide Festival Centre Riverdeck and Northern Promenade (new Festival Theatre entrance). Featuring some of Adelaide’s finest musicians, the program runs across selected dates from Friday 28 December to 17 February.

While you’re here, grab yourself a colourful cocktail or delicious meal from newly developed The Star Kitchen and Bar (in the former Lyrics café site) or Neon Bar (situated at the junction of the Riverbank Footbridge and the Dunstan Playhouse), and take in the beautiful views as you watch the sun set over the River Torrens.

It’s an ideal location to meet with friends and also the perfect place to hang out between performances of Club Swizzle (Space Theatre), The Rocky Horror Show (Festival Theatre), or at many of the Adelaide Festival Centre’s upcoming 2018 events.
