Adelaide Fringe Opening Night
To officially open the 2018 Adelaide Fringe Festival everyone is invited to attend this very special Sunset Ceremony at the South Australian Museum on North Terrace in the city.

The ceremony recognises the living culture of our First Nations peoples and pays respect to the spirits of our land.

The indigenous stories are told with dance, song, music and a smoking ceremony by local Aboriginal dance group Yellaka.

It's a breathtaking event to be witness to. We are very privileged that this special event is brought to us by the Kaurna people of Adelaide. The Aboriginal people are our nation's first people and are the world's oldest indigenous culture. Yellaka shows their connection to these ancient lands and their living and past cultures.

The dance and smoking ceremony is hypnotic and emotional and is a definite "must see" on your Fringe Festival to do list.

Be sure to arrive early and get your spot on the front lawns of the South Australian Museum for this event - thousands attend each year and this year will be even bigger. The ceremony starts at 8 pm and is free for everyone to attend.

In the vein of spirits and the sharing of light, the switching on of the Parade of Light immediately follows the Sunset Ceremony. North Terrace will be alive with a street market, performers and live music too - it's going to be a great night in Adelaide!

Tindo Utpurndee is proudly supported by UniSA
