Indonesian Dancers - Free Entertainment at Indofest

Indonesia is one of Australia's closest and most important neighbours, and Indofest 2015 celebrates the best of that cultural connection on the October long weekend.

On Monday October 5, Indofest 2015 will take over the cultural heart of Adelaide. The festival will blossom in the historic precinct bounded by the Migration Museum, the State Library, the South Australian Museum and the Art Gallery of South Australia. Surrounded by some the most historic and culturally buildings in Adelaide, visitors can explore the Indonesian Archipelago.

Indofest aims to introduce Indonesia to the South Australian public by showcasing a beautiful range of Indonesian art, dance, music, food and language. A range of other activities coinciding with Indofest are designed to encourage networking opportunities between Indonesian and Australian business and cultural groups. A Tourism Forum and VIP Dinner on October 6 will help to create these closer cultural ties between South Australia and Indonesia.
