Adelaide’s music scene is kicking!
There is a rumour that Adelaide is a sleepy old big country town and in some ways she is. However, people are starting to find what us locals always knew! That there is, in fact, a whole lot of really cool things happening! With the government and Music SA taking great steps, we are building on what has always been an amazing live local Adelaide music scene! As a UNESCO City of Music, there is so much scope for growth. The best bit is that there is something for everyone to enjoy as well! So why not take a look at what my top 20 must-do music-based experiences in Adelaide! Feel free to comment as I always love discovering more!
Adelaide’s Music Bucket List
- SA Music Awards. Each year Music SA holds the SA Music Awards with a few tickets available to the general public. It is a great way to see what is happening in the local contemporary scene!
- Check out a metal concert at the Enigma Bar. The statues at the door really set up the experience of seeing a concert here. I have only ever seen local metal bands here and I really think that everyone should experience that at least once!
- Check out a local band at Jive. Just up the road from the Enigma is Jive! With its awesome street art, this is a cool little spot to check out some local bands. Entry is usually cheap and take some cash to buy CDs!
- Find local SA music acts at the Adelaide Fringe. Did you know there is a mini Fringe guide called Frusic thanks to Music SA? It is a guide of all the music events in the Adelaide Fringe in February and March. Grab a copy and circle all the awesome local acts you can find!
