As South Australia swings into summertime, a new festival is on the horizon, taking the state’s incoming festival season to the next level.

The Empty Threats are celebrating the launch of their self-titled EP the best way we know how – by throwing an epic mini-festival.

The five-piece collective has teamed up with several musical talents and some of SA’s best and brightest brewers, distillers and winemakers to bring Adelaide an afternoon filled with beats and booze on November 27.

Taking the stage at the Wunderberg’s Recording Studio, The Empty Threats will treat crowds to the first live performance of their EP, letting the fuzz rock, psychedelic sounds of the band croon through the West Thebarton locale. Supporting the neo-psych group will be homegrown wonders from the likes of Bermuda Bay to Ethanol Blend, Placement and TWINE.

In the spirit of the outdoor summer festivals that we all love and miss, there’ll be a delicious showcase of drink and food vendors on the day.

Beers will be on offer by local hops enthusiasts Pirate Life Brewing, Thebarton distillery aficionados Imperial Measures Distilling will be sorting all of your Gin needs and there’ll be wines in a can available from Riot Wine Co. And as if the day couldn’t get any better – quintessential vegan-friendly food truck Staazi & Co will be dishing up their mouthwatering Greek food throughout the event.

Although a challenging year for the live music industry, festival-goers will finally be able to stand, drink in hand, and bask in a brilliance of a festival that reminds them of those golden pre-COVID days.

The mini-festival comes as SA gears up for the impending South Australian Music Awards (SAM). The Empty Threats are finalists in this year’s show, vying for both Best Group and People’s Choice Experimental Artist. While the high-energy band won’t be touring nationally, The Empty Threats will instead be focusing their pent-up pre-tour energy on this massive show.

Tickets cost $25, with The Empty Threats mini-festival kicking off at 5pm on Saturday, November 27.
