Party all night long
It is the news you have been waiting to hear- Barrio is back.

In 2013, the Adelaide Festival brings to town an eclectic and unique array of artistic entertainment. The Adelaide Festival program is running from March 1st until March 17th at venues all around Adelaide and is rich with theatre, music, dance, written and visual arts. The beating heart of this dazzling festival of art is the Barrio Late Night Club.

Adelaide Festival 2013
Festival Program

Barrio Late Night Club is a place where artists and audience members alike can mix and mingle together to celebrate Adelaide, the Festival and all that it encompasses.

The vibrant shantytown of Barrio is part marketplace, part nightclub, part foodhall and part performance venue. Indulge at the many eateries and bars while being entertained by popular local and international musical acts like Soul II Soul, Surahn, Ross McHenry, Electric Empire and Gramatik.

It is open from 9pm until late each weekend of the Festival and can be found at Hajek Plaza at the Adelaide Festival Centre, behind Parliament House on King William Road. There is a $5 cover charge to enter this wild, weird and wonderful world.

With a party free for backpackers and an evening of ceremonies, every night at Barrio will be unlike the last with an intriguing theme for each. If the program below is any indication at all it seems that there are a few surprises to be had.

Friday March 1st: Lunch Lady
Saturday March 2nd: Bunga Bunga Party
Sunday March 3rd: Key to Barrio
Thursday March 7th: Phobia
Friday March 8th: Heaven's Gate
Saturday March 9th: Dice World
Sunday March 10th: Old Maid
Thursday March 14th: Animal House
Friday March 15th: Road Kill
Saturday March 16th: Slumber Party

One wonders what a "bunga bunga party" entails but as Barrio declares "the less you know... the more fun you will have". So it seems there is only one way to find out (provided you are of legal age).

The Slumber Party is the grand finale of Barrio. If you wish, and for a donation of $100 to Mission Australia, you will be allowed express entry on the final night of Barrio to party until you can't party anymore, then find a cosy corner to curl up for the night.

Be prepared to play the waiting game as it is bound to be busy and with popularity comes queues. Once in, let the beasts and beats of Barrio compel you to drink, dine, dance, discuss and enjoy the 2013 Adelaide Festival - don't forget to bring your shrine offering.

I was just about to ask what 'bunga bunga' meant...looked it up and wikipedia says it is some kind of 'under water orgy' with topless women. Barrio was right, better not to know.
