The Adelaide Festival Centre (North Ter & King William St, 2) is the heart of world-class production in Adelaide. Following an extensive refurbishment, the Festival Centre will be home to a number of shows this season across its three performance spaces (Festival Theatre, Dunstan Playhouse, Space Theatre). The Palais (Torrens Riverbank/Elder Park, 1) will be returning on the River Torrens with live music, long lunches and beautiful views, and Writers’ Week will again be across King William Road in the Pioneer Women’s Memorial Garden (15).

Adelaide Town Hall (128 King William St, 4) will host a range of voices, orchestras and bands, and the State Library of South Australia (North Ter & Kintore Ave, 18) will incorporate an interactive art installation. Next door, the Art Gallery of South Australia (North Terrace), in conjunction with Jam Factory (19 Morphett St), the Anne & Gordon Samstag Museum of Art (55 North Ter), and the Santos Museum of Economic Botany (in the Adelaide Botanic Garden), will present Australian artists in the Adelaide Biennial exhibition Divided Worlds.

Her Majesty’s Theatre (58 Grote St, 13) in the centre of the CBD will see theatre, music, and dance pieces come to life, and Elder Park (King William Rd, 10) will utilise the most of the weather with a number of outdoor performances. The beautiful acoustics of Saint Peter's Cathedral (27 King William Rd) will be well exploited by the Adelaide Chamber Singers in Late Night in the Cathedral

Over in the West End you'll find Grainger Studio (91 Hindley St) for Stalin's Piano, AC Arts (39 Light Sq) for opera and dance, and ACE Open (Lion Arts Centre, North Ter) for an important art exhibition regarding sense of self within the Australian Muslim community. For a change of scenery, head to UKARIA Cultural Centre (119 Williams Rd, Mount Barker Summit, 19) in the Adelaide Hills for a serene music experience.
