Adelaide's Other Festival Season

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
8/06/12 - 23/06/12

Katie Noonan in Love-Song-Circus

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.

The festival is headed by artistic director Kate Ceberano, and features talented folks like Katie Noonan, Lenny Henry, Eddie Perfect, Tex Perkins, Paris Wells, and more. You can also let your hair down at the Backstage Festival Club, a free and fabulous venue open every night of the festival.

You can check out the full program online, and there are some great savings if you have a Green Room membership.

Adelaide Cabaret Fringe Festival
8/06/12 - 23/06/12

Like any good festival, the Adelaide Cabaret Festival also has its Fringe Festival. There are a long list of venues on board for the Adelaide Cabaret Fringe Festival, like Tuxedo Cat, La Boheme, Higher Ground, and the Promethean, all embracing the spirit of Cabaret.

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.

Check out the Opening Gala Night, Upstaging Hans, and Barely Legal.

You can check out the full program online, and pick the shows you'll be attending.

The BankSA Sea and Vines Festival
08/06/12 - 11/06/12

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.

The Delight and Relish dinners provide a snippet of the region, while the Experience Sunday and Experience Monday events give you a full day of exploring the Vales.

The special dinners and food events are likely to book out quickly, so it's a good idea to buy your tickets soon. Check out the full program of events online.
