Since 1960, the Adelaide Festival has brought us internationally acclaimed theatre productions, world-class musicians, dance and visual arts.

Today, its delightful productions have brought in over 19,000 interstate and overseas visitors and achieved over 6 million dollars in box office income. Artistic directors Neil Armfield and Rachel Healy set a new record compared to the festival’s previous running years.

“The Festival is such an important part of South Australia’s identity and today, quite distinct from its enormous cultural significance”, said Judy Potter, Chair of the Adelaide Festival.

Joint Artistic Director Rachel Healy said, “We are delighted that the Adelaide Festival has again proved its importance to the South Australian economy; a measure of its value that sits alongside its cultural and reputational significance.”

The Adelaide Festival will return from 28 February to 15 March 2020.
