Party at the Adelaide Fringe Festival

The warm summer nights are perfect for the
Festival, and events go on until late.  

The biggest festival in the Southern Hemisphere will kick off pretty shortly, turning every nook and cranny in Adelaide into one giant party.

The festival completely takes over the city with all things quirky, fun and frivolous with the legendary opening night party and the Adelaide International Buskers Festival being two highlights.

The opening night of the Adelaide Fringe 2011 will see a cast of thousands, led by the alternative King and Queen, parade from the corner of Dequetteville Tce down the streets of the East End. As the sun sets, the Parade will dance into Wonderland (the transformed Rymill Park) for a night of soul, funk, reggae, jazz, new folk, calypso, indie, pop and world music. And it’s free!

The Adelaide Fringe began as an alternative to the Adelaide Festival and has become an enormously popular event. There are hundreds of cabaret, comedy, dance, theatre, music, film, circus and visual arts events all around the city for the 24 days and nights of the festival. Best of all, there are lots of free events.

More than a million people attend the free and ticketed events at the festival, and the opening night party alone attracts more than 80,000 people.

The Adelaide Fringe Festival kicks off on Friday February 18 until Sunday, March 13. Visit www.adelaidefringe.com.au for more information.
