One of the world’s most exciting and progressive experimental music festivals – Unsound – will return to the Queen’s Theatre from 14-16 December.

After 4 years within the Adelaide Festival program and last year’s successful 2017 event as a standalone festival, Unsound Adelaide returns to the Queen’s Theatre in 2018. Unsound will be held from 14-16 December over two nights of live music, sound installations and will feature exclusive shows to Australia.

Unsound is a festival focussed on presenting avant-garde electronic music and art that began in Krakow, Poland in 2003. Now in its 15th year, Unsound has grown to be one of the world’s most adventurous music festivals – with Adelaide being the only Southern Hemisphere event.

This year’s Unsound Adelaide also sees the return of the late night club shows – to be held at Sugar on Friday 14 and Saturday 15 December. The successful Discourse Program presented by The Bob Hawke Prime Ministerial Centre, UniSA will continue to be a vital part of the weekend – offering a chance for the audience to interact with the artists.

The State Government of South Australia, through the South Australian Tourism Commission and Events South Australia and Arts SA through the Music Development Office, is a major partner of Unsound Adelaide.

Full passes will be on sale for Unsound Adelaide on 6 September and for further announcements please visit http://www.unsoundadelaide.com and subscribe now for access to pre-sale tickets and program updates.
