Winter is here and the entertainment on offer at Adelaide Festival Centre makes it the place to be to warm up those chilly days and nights!

We are excited to welcome this year’s highly anticipated Adelaide Cabaret Festival from 11 – 26 June, under the artistic direction of the legendary Alan Cumming. Alan’s program is his ‘love letter’ to Australia and is shaping up to be one to remember… your banquet awaits!

Adelaide Guitar Festival, led by Artistic Director Slava Grigoryan and held from 4 – 25 July, gives festival goers the opportunity to experience world-class guitarists coming together to deliver an exciting program of events.  From regional roadshows, workshops, master classes, artist’s talks, panel discussions and ticketed performances, don’t miss this celebration of the guitar and showcase the world’s finest guitarists.
