I enjoy writing about Adelaide and its many attractions. If you think Adelaide is boring,
the problem is not with Adelaide.

Update April 2nd 2013
Grand re-Opening weekend is kicking off at 5pm April 5 with free entertainment, live bands, DJ's, performers, Food Trucks, and drink specials all weekend.
I do wonder whether The Depot's PR person was hyperventilating though, when they wrote somewhat breathlessly:
The Depot is a highly temporal and evolving venue with themes that will change throughout the duration of the Fringe, promoting surprise and intrigue. The spontaneous, industrial aesthetic of the space will be created with the use lightweight and cost-effective construction materials, layered over a staple of shipping containers and abandoned buildings
However one describes it, The Depot is bound to be a very busy location during the Adelaide Fringe, and is ideally located just down the road from the Adelaide Central Market.
There is already a busy schedule of some of the cream of Adelaide events at The Depot, including concerts, art exhibitions, and films.
The Take Heart Queensland concert is a particularly important fundraising event at The Depot supporting Queensland flood victims, with all proceeds going to the Red Cross. It's on Tuesday February 19 from 4pm - 10pm.
Admission is by a paltry gold coin donation, and around 5,000 people have already signed up to attend. You can expect plenty of live entertainment, a fleet of food trucks, licensed bar, raffles and auctions.
A couple of other activities at the Depot are particularly noteworthy.
The Kid's Fringe runs from February 25 to March 8, offering the chance to be amused and entertained by some quite unusual activities. Play the day away in a fun and safe environment for $15 per child, parents and carers are free.
