Festival Description

The festival offers free concerts all day — taking place at the end of Rundle Street and throughtout the city of Adelaide! Just like Paris, New York, Tokyo, or Buenos Aires, Adelaide will be one of the 350 cities in the world to celebrate music and musicians by being part of the world’s largest international music event. The event is also celebrated in other cities in Australia, including Brisbane, where this year more than 70 concerts will take place.

The festival is supported by the Rundle Street Market and the Adelaide City Council, and promoted by Alliance Française, the French cultural centre in South Australia. It is not a festival, but general celebration day of music and musicians regardless of their style of music or ability. The more diversity, the better. The musicians will perform free performances all over the city with a highlight on the east end of Rundle Street area.

Performance spots in the Rundle Street market area will be available for spontaneous music-making… Like in a giant jam session, bring your instrument and register on the board available at the spots. Performances are free and held outside of traditional music venues so you can expect to hear music everywhere on that day. So far, more than 150 musicians have signed up for the event and will play for free in more than 15 different performing spots all around the east end of Rundle Street and the wider city.

Whether you are a hip hop artist, a traditional musician, an opera diva, a reggae band, a school choir or you play a musical instrument you are all invited to come for this exciting event. A wide range of styles and music, including jazz, aboriginal musicians, folk, classical music, choirs, hip hop and DJs, traditional musicians, cabaret music, rock… So be prepared to see a brass band out of balcony, a DJ jamming with jazz musicians, or a ukulele trio in your favourite café.
