Adelaide Beer & BBQ Festival 2024

Experience an action-packed weekend like no other as Australia’s premier music, beer, and food festival returns to the Adelaide Showground this winter from July 12-14, 2024!

Get ready for an unforgettable weekend packed with live music from iconic Australian legends. On Friday, July 12th, the Australian Rock Collective (ARC) featuring members of Powderfinger, Spiderbait, You Am I, and Jet will take the stage, delivering an electrifying performance celebrating Aussie rock. Saturday, July 13th will feature Bad//Dreems & Friends performing The Great South Australian Songbook, a special collaboration paying homage to the state’s musical heritage. Cap off the weekend on Sunday, July 14th with Peter Combe and his Newspaper Mama Band for a family-friendly session filled with fun for all ages (and dogs, too!)

Beyond the incredible music lineup, indulge in the largest barbecue selection ever assembled at the festival and enjoy a wide array of craft beers from local and international brewers. But that’s not all—immerse yourself in a range of activities including live BMX and skating demos, Riot City Wrestling, masterclass panel discussions with brewers and chefs, pie-eating contests, axe throwing, a tattoo parlour, market stalls, silent disco, and the legendary Beer Bod Wet T-Shirt Competition.

Sunday 14 July

11am - 6pm
Whether you're backing up from another earlier session on the Robert Downey Schooners or you're coming in fresh AF with the ankle biter (of the 2 or 4 legged varietal) in tow, then Sunday is the best session of the weekend to kick back, try that burger, immerse yourself in that stout and just relax with mates. After all, ale you need is love. This session does not include a commemorative stein in the ticket price (our four legged friends prefer not to tread on glass).
