Summer Concert Series – Bird In Hand Winery

Friday, 16 February and Saturday, 17 February
Bird In Hand & Pfeiffer Roads, Woodside

Look, we’re not going to lie to you – this is our favourite event of 2018 so far! And it’s all because of three little words: Gang Of Youths. Fresh off their success in the Triple J Hottest 100, they’re gearing up for a live show at one of the state’s best wineries, Bird In Hand. The lineup is accompanied by supporting acts Middle Kids on Saturday – and Neil & Liam Finn kicking off the weekend on Friday. Sorry if you’re only just learning about this one – tickets have (unsurprisingly) sold out!


Sunset Sessions – Adelaide Festival Centre

Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays during Summer
King William Street, Adelaide

While the renovations continue over at the Adelaide Festival Centre, they have recently launched their new Sunset Sessions to the public. Living in Adelaide, we witness spectacular sunsets night after night – and what better way to enjoy them than at a free music event, with a drink in hand and overlooking the River Torrens. Located on the new Riverdeck next to the similarly new Neon Bar & Kitchen, the AFC’s Sunset Sessions will are definitely the place to be.
