Bonython Park to host epic summer festival season

Summer Sounds Festival is a new SA Health approved summer concert series that is set to bring live music, summer sounds and all the party vibes back to SA.


Get excited for what is gearing up to be a summer to remember thanks to Summer Sounds Festival with Aussie icons, triple j favourites, a bunch of the hottest newcomers and a couple of supersized sing-alongs coming in hot.

Happening between 30 December 2020 and 30 January 2021, you can expect more than 20 epic shows staged during the summer festive season at Bonython Park/Tulya Wodli, in Adelaide’s beautiful Park Lands.

Not like your usual festival, Summer Sounds is a specially designed, SA Health-approved outdoor venue that will see socially distanced Party Pods allowing groups of 4 – 6 to groove down to legends of Australian music.

What seems to be the new era of the festivals, guests will have the choice of booking a VIP, Gold, Silver or Bronze Party Pod where they can dance, drink, stand or sit.

Alongside pre-ordered drinks, patrons will be able to order additional beverages at the show through the Summer Sounds event app, which will then be delivered directly to their Party Pod via a fleet of golf buggy mobile bars. It’s the VIP treatment you’ve always dreamed of.

For those who need a little extra snackage on the day, alongside the pre order options there’ll also be a range of food trucks at the ready.
