Adelaide is home to a key leg of one of the most popular music festivals in Australia, even the world – Big Day Out – on January 30th.
Built on a core philosophy of really good music, the festival includes some of the best-known bands from around the world, transcending but by no means excluding the thriving contemporary music scene in Australia.
Among the highlights across the different venues will be the guitar driven sounds of Arctic Monkeys, Serj Tankian and the Dropkick Murphys.
Catering to more electronic tastes are Hot Chip and the Ting Tings, while hip-hop fans will no doubt be excited about an appearance by Lupe Fiasco.
Possibly the biggest draw this year, however, will be the legend that is Neil Young, who is lined up to play a 90-minute set.
As if those superb guests weren’t enough then there’s plenty to keep revellers occupied in between sets, with a selection of side shows and other attractions on hand.
Adelaide is the capital of the state of South Australia.
