Adelaide is set to come alive this long weekend, with plenty of great reasons to leave the Oodie at home, and venue out into the CBD. Combining all the best bits of South Australia will be Hutt Street’s 3-day street party, which will celebrate the city’s rich culture, great music, markets, food and wine, and more.
Penny Hospitality and Expressions Media are teaming up with Adelaide Unleashed bring the party to Hutt Street, which will include live entertainment, wine tastings, market stalls and delicious eats.
The festival will stretch along the eastern side of Hutt Street between Allen Place and Carrington Street, where you’ll be able to indulge in local food, interact with businesses and converse with local artists.
Undercover areas for the food, market stalls and wine tastings will protect party-goers from the ever-changing weather, plus you’ll also be able to cosy up to one of the many fire pits scattered throughout the event.
The music line up is fierce, with pop-punk SAM Award winners, Wing Defence delivering the feature set on Friday night, along with other performances from Maisie, Alana Jagt, Orelia, Mark Curtis & the Flannelettes and Sabor a Cuba.
Saturday afternoon will feature acoustic sets from Katie Aspel, Baby Mo, Trav Collins and Trent Worley, before DJs take over for the evening session.
Then on Sunday, acclaimed NSW singer-songwriter Joe Mungovan will headline the program, with other highlights to include Oscar the Wild, Nathan May, Kelly Menhennett and the Yellow Wallpaper.
With a totally free lineup that boasts a wealth of South Australian talent and a NSW headliner on the Sunday night, there’s no better time for Adelaide audiences to get out and experience live music, following the disruptions and restrictions of recent years.
Complementing the musical lineup will be a host of scrumptious food trucks and wine offerings, including Gang Gang Society’s juicy burgers, Mozzarella Fellas’ authentic Italian, and Forage Supply Co’s vegan delights, just to name a few.
The City’s wine tastings will bring the vines to the CBD and will feature 24 wineries over Friday and Saturday, including the likes of Salena Estate, Cape Barren, Mary’s Myth and Watkins.
The street party is aimed towards people who may have missed the opportunity of enjoying some of Adelaide’s best offerings during previous periods of COVID restrictions. The event hopes to celebrate togetherness and the local food and wine scene. The street party will seek to build on the recent successes of ‘opening up’ events such as the Adelaide Fringe and WOMADelaide.
Adelaide Unleashed is driven by City of Adelaide, Adelaide Economic Development Agency and State Government of South Australia and is a collaborative effort to enliven Adelaide’s community with creative production companies to encourage visitors to experience, stay, and fall in love with what Adelaide has to offer.
Penny Hospitality has been instrumental in operating some of Adelaide’s most prominent Festivals, such as Spin Off, RCC, Alpine Winter Festival, plus more exciting projects on the horizon soon to be announced.
Founder and Managing Director of Penny Hospitality Hugo Pedler, whose business has recently moved into Hutt Street, is thrilled to be celebrating their arrival with wine and song.
Hugo shares, “It’s really exciting to have the opportunity to be involved in bringing the Hutt St community together, especially having recently taken over The Havelock. We’re really excited to bring more foot traffic to Hutt St and revitalise such a beautiful street.”
Expressions Media Managing Director Libby Trainor Parker is looking forward to beating the winter blues with some dancing in the street.
“Our office has been based on Hutt for more than three years and we have seen the street go from strength to strength with new eateries, businesses and bars. We are excited about adding to that landscape on the long weekend with our new neighbours and besties Penny Hospitality, with some of Adelaide’s best bands, and a sneaky interstate headliner to lure people out of the house and onto the best main street in town,” she says.
One thing to note is that while the event is on, there will be road closures applied across 45 car parking bays and market stalls will be positioned on the footpath from the end of Bar Torino to Plenty Cafe. The General Havelock Hotel and The Olivia Hotel will have extended dining into the parking bays.
