Adelaide Fringe in partnership with the State Government will be supporting two locally-led events on Kangaroo Island this year.

The first event, run by local Olivia Baker, is “Bush Festival” under the gum trees at Wittows Creek, Eleanor Downs Farm, on Saturday March 21st, and will feature a program including international artists brought straight from the Adelaide Fringe along with many local performers.

The second event “From the Heart”, run by local organisation Smart Future Creative, will happen on the October long weekend 2020. The program will facilitate a powerful and moving connection to country with First Nations artists and performers from around South Australia and beyond. A very exciting line up and program of events will be announced soon.

Premier Steven Marshall said the events would allow the Kangaroo Island community to take a break from the recovery process, and spend time with family and friends.

After connecting with KI locals this initiative has been designed to support the plans and needs of the Kangaroo Island community. Adelaide Fringe will waive all fees associated with ticket sales in these events and ensure 100% of the box office goes to the local producers behind the events.

Adelaide Fringe, in collaboration with the local event planners and artists, plan to establish these events sustainably to ensure longevity with repeat events in future years.

Tickets to both events will be sold at with Bush Festival tickets already on sale now!
