Royal Adelaide Show re-introduces live music program for first time in over twenty years

The Royal Show is looking to return with a bang after its two-year hiatus with a full live music program set to entertain!

We were painfully close to seeing the return of the Royal Adelaide show in 2021 after it was cancelled the year before due to COVID-19 but it was pulled from our feet just weeks before it was due to go ahead.

But it’s been confirmed that the Show will be back this year giving us all something to look forward to after its 2-year hiatus. Returning to the show grounds this September, you’ll be able to experience everything you know and love about the state’s longest-running event plus some fun new additions!

And while the Royal Show has been home to many great acts over the years, for the first time in 23 years a dedicated live music program is back on the agenda! Running across two stages, music from local SA and Indigenous artists will play every day from 10am. A full program is set to be released in the coming weeks.

This dedicated music schedule is unlike anything the Show has ever seen and thanks to a government grant of $500,000, is hoped to attract a whole new crowd and serve as a platform for emerging artists.

And of course, all the main show attractions will be there with rides, show bags, exhibitions animals and of course the delicious food.

It’s no secret that the Royal Show is one of the most-loved events on SA’s calendar and stallholders and organisers are gearing up for a huge turnout this year with numbers expected to surpass 400,000 over the nine days.

And while there are still a few months until the festivities begin, entries for the 60+ competitions run throughout are already open! If you think you’ve got unrivalled skills in cooking or chocolate making or if your pet is a step above the rest, enter yourself to compete in the prestigious awards. Registrations can be made online here.

Run by The Royal Agricultural & Horticultural Society, the Show plays an important role in supporting the rural industries of SA and the importance the industry plays on the state’s economy.

Tickets will go on sale in August this year and more details and schedules are set to be released in the coming months.

The Royal Adelaide Show will run from Saturday 3 – Sunday 11 September 2022.

Adelaide Showground is located at Goodwood Road, Wayville 5034.
