The biennial DreamBIG childrens festival continues to be an integral part of Adelaide's festival scene. Those who are old enough will remember its origins as the 'Come Out Festival' and today, DreamBIG Festival is still an important part of South Australian school life.
The family program promises days of thoughtful and awe-inspiring entertainment and features over 350 artists! The eleven days will be packed with performances from song and dance to giant robots, story readings with a twist, silent discos, interactive play opportunities, and more.

The DreamBIG opening event is at Adelaide Oval on May 22. First up there'll be a reading of children's book "Alpacas with Maracas," held in unison with school students across Australia as part of the National Simultaneous Storytime initiative. Then, up to 2000 children will sing the High School Musical hit "We're All in this Together". This'll be followed by SA icons Electric Fields, who recently came second in Australia's Eurovision entry competition.
