Adelaide Cabaret Festival 2020 has been cancelled, following the South Australian Government’s declaration of a public health emergency, and ban on non-essential gatherings of 100 people or more at indoor premises including Adelaide Festival Centre. There are also travel bans in force which affect artists coming from interstate and overseas to South Australia.
Patrons who have already purchased tickets for early release Adelaide Cabaret Festival performances will be notified by BASS via SMS or email and will automatically receive a full refund. Patrons do not need to call BASS or the box office.
2020 would have been the 20th Anniversary of Adelaide Festival Centre’s Adelaide Cabaret Festival, a winter delight in South Australia’s calendar.
The program for the June festival, packed with talented artists and amazing shows, was ready to share with audiences.
However, the health of all Adelaide Festival Centre’s patrons, artists and staff is the priority and cancelling the festival for this year was the only responsible decision to help protect the community from COVID-19.
In the interim, the Adelaide Cabaret Festival team is exploring ways to support our valued cabaret artists and share digital content with audiences; we look forward to sharing more details about this shortly.
In the meantime, please stay connected online.
