We’re nearly at the end of January (a little bit frightening), and you know what that means… Adelaide’s Fringe Season is nearly here! To help us get organised early, Adelaide Fringe’s biggest brick and mortar venue, The GC, has released its 2018 Fringe Program… and it’s looking fun, fabulous and fresh.
Packed full of music, comedy and magic, audiences will be able to have a taste of it all. The GC truly is the perfect spot to head if you love to enjoy your favourite Fringe acts in air-conditioned comfort, complete with great food, cold beer and small queues.
Since starting as a Fringe venue in 2016, The GC has continued to support the live music scene in Adelaide by opening the German Club doors to music lovers and performers alike throughout the rest of the year.
The GC says the 2018 music program is the strongest and most diverse concert offeringsto date. With names such as Stewart D’Arrietta and his World Premiere Belly of a Drunken Piano as well as Australian music legend Glen Shorrock, founder of the Little River Band, who will be performing his greatest hits and exploring his lifetime career, there is something for everyone.
Along with incredible live entertainment, some of the best comedy acts will be brought across the globe including The Kagools’ TUTTI (which was a hit last Fringe) and, exclusive to the German Club, a show called Kosher Bacon from Channel Ten’s The Project writer Michael Shafar.
Let’s not forget the magic! Britain’s bad boys of magic Kane and Abel have finally landed in Australia and have decided to break every single rule telling audiences all the things they shouldn’t about their illusions. There’s magic and fun for kids and families too, with Magic on the Edge (Adelaide’s top illusionists who sold out at The GC in 2017), Cosmo the Clown and Bingo Jack… all with matinees and early evening shows so you can bring the kids!
The central city location of Flinders Street means you’re avoiding the Fringe hustle and bustle of the East Parklands, but are not so far away that you can’t head down later in the night.
So it appears that The GC really does have your Fringe 2018 needs covered. See you down there!
