Music Made in Adelaide

Panel Discussion & Live Music Showcase
  • Event

In 2015 Adelaide was designated a City of Music by the UNESCO Creative Cities Network. Adelaide is a creative city, with music as its heartbeat, outward looking and internationally engaged, enriching the whole state of South Australia.

Made in Adelaide has partnered with Scotland’s legendary music business event organisation, Born to Be Wide, to present an evening that begins with a panel of representatives from the Edinburgh and Adelaide festivals, discussing different ways they can provide a platform for emerging musicians.

It will be followed by an opportunity for people from the respective music and arts scenes to meet, socialise and enjoy live showcases by South Australian acts Carla Lippis, Wanderers and MANE.

Topic: How can arts festivals provide a platform for local emerging musicians?
