Illuminate Adelaide

A celebration of innovation, art, light, music and technology

Winter in South Australia means late nights, bright lights, and big adventures.

Each year throughout July, Illuminate Adelaide celebrates that idea by bringing together the best and boldest in art, music, technology and invention from around Australia and the world, and sets them loose across the city and the state.

From 28 June to 30 July, South Australia’s premier winter event turns Adelaide’s streetscapes and iconic locations into a beacon. An invitation. A city-wide spectacle daring you to shake off the winter blues and rekindle a sense of wonder.

The innovative program boasts immersive experiences, world premieres and Adelaide exclusives in a range of ticketed and free events across the city including world renowned, multimedia studio Moment Factory who will showcase two new experiences - Resonate in Adelaide Botanic Garden and Mirror Mirror in the Illuminate Pavilion on Victoria Square/Tarntanyangga. The creative geniuses Architects of Air introduce an Australian exclusive with Arborialis and the celebrated, free city-wide centrepiece City Lights returns with 40 new installations and projections. Music also takes centre-stage for Illuminate Adelaide with a bolstered 2023 program including genre defying visual series KLASSIK underground, electronic music event Unsound Adelaide as well as dedicated concerts at Hindley Street Music Hall by Yothu Yindi, Oneohtrix Point Never and Tourist.
