Variety Gala

Presented by Adelaide Festival Centre

Adelaide Exclusive
Australia & International Artists

Kick off the festival with the glitz and glamour of the opening night red carpet before being bedazzled by a shimmering showcase of what’s in store over the opening weekend.

One of the longest-running festival highlights, Artistic Director Ali McGregor plays ringmaster to a carnival of cabaret which promises to dazzle and delight. This tasting plate of talent makes the Variety Gala a perfect start to your Adelaide Cabaret Festival season.

If this cocktail of cabaret stars isn’t enough to tempt you away from the heater then you just don’t know talent when you see it. InDaily
