Like Edinburgh, Adelaide really knows how to do festivals. Made in Adelaide brings together more than 70 artists, festivals, presenters and producers from Australia’s festival city to Edinburgh – the mother ship!
Representing 10 Adelaide festivals, including Adelaide Fringe (second only to Edinburgh’s), this year’s Made in Adelaide delegation will build on the strong presence of South Australian work in Edinburgh during its summer festival season.
Last year’s pilot program had an impressive impact and helped our artists increase their profile and achieve some outstanding professional outcomes within and beyond the Edinburgh Fringe.
This year, our scope is broader, and the breadth and depth of the offering has grown to incorporate film, visual arts and writing.
As well as growing access and participation to the Edinburgh marketplace for our local artists and companies, Made in Adelaide is equally about highlighting the quality and vibrancy of our Arts scene, and boosting visitation to a city set between the hills and the sea and fringed by wine districts.
So come and see us at the Made in Adelaide pergola in Summerhall’s courtyard – find out about our artists, festivals, sip some South Australian wine and find out why you should make Adelaide your next must-see destination.
Adelaide is a designated UNESCO City of Music as part of its Creative Cities Network. Check out our Music Showcase on 9 August and our Made in Adelaide Cabaret Gala on 13 August – both in Summerhall’s Dissection Room.
