Now that winter is officially here, it's tempting to spend your night snuggled up in front of the fire. Why not do something a bit more exciting instead. June is about music, food, and wine, take a look at the top 5 events happening this June.
These June events will take you through the large theatres of the festival centres, and the hideaway venues that charm Adelaide streets. From wineries and the coast in the Fleurieu Region, to the Adelaide Hills alive with music, and even up through the Riverland.
It's a month to explore the state, while you explore its culture.
The Adelaide Cabaret Festival celebrates the debauchery of life, combining music, physical theatre, comedy, and circus. We see a bit of this during Adelaide's Fringe Festival, but in June Cabaret takes over.
Of course, it's the acts that are really worth taking note of. Over 50 acts are coming to Adelaide, including plenty from interstate and overseas. It's a great chance to catch something new and interesting from the weird and wonderful minds behind these Cabaret acts.
The BankSA Sea and Vines festival combines the best wine of the McLaren Vale region with the best produce from McLaren Vale and Fleurieu costal regions. In 2012, the festival follows a different format, with many dining events over the weekend, and two days full of wine tastings and experiences.
Over the June Long Weekend, The Adelaide Hills will play host to a number of local, interstate, and international Jazz guests. The HOOT Adelaide Hills' Jazz Festival brings a little warmth to the Adelaide Hills with fiery and feisty jazz music all weekend.
Jazz is taking over everywhere, from the trains to the bowls clubs. The festival is also a great chance to experience some of the enchanting venues throughout the Adelaide Hills.
The Riverland is a bit far to be considered Adelaide, but if you like country music this event is worth the drive. The South Australian Country Music Festival is held in the first two weeks of June, with a program that includes concerts, buskers, and the awards ceremony.
You'll find plenty of free events, as well as other events like markets and dancing that compliment the festival.
