Adelaide Cabaret Festival

Our Riverbank Neighbour the Adelaide Festival Centre’s Adelaide Cabaret Festival returns from 5th-20th June 2015, jam packed with another star-studded program of both international artists and a record number of local artists. Internationally acclaimed Barry Humphries is this year’s artistic Director which promises that this is a festival not to be missed. My personal recommendation is that you don’t miss Peter and Jack, this Sunday, 7th June at 07:30 PM, specially curated for the festival by our very own Barry Humphries that pays tribute to the legendary duo, the bass-baritone Peter Dawson and songwriter Jack O’Hagan.

Adelaide Oval – Port Adelaide takes on Western Bulldogs
