Umbrella Kicks Off This Friday

This year, Umbrella: Winter City Sounds is bigger and better than ever, and to celebrate, this Friday night, we are taking the party to the streets!

From 5pm in Topham Mall, a stellar collection of local bands and DJs will be showcased on the Umbrella stage, while you warm yourself with great food and beverage like Sunny’s pizza and beer by Young Henry’s.

In a shared celebration with NAIDOC Week, Jack Buckskin will perform a Kaurna Ceremony to open the evening before entertainment by roving performers, activities for the whole family and a performance by special guest Archie Roach.

Come and dance to the music of Ollie English, Corey Theatre, Alana Jagt, Nathan May and DJ Jessi Jacoby.

With toasty fires and street performers, Umbrella will be kicking off in fine fashion thanks to Music SA, Adelaide Fringe, Government of South Australia, City of Adelaide, Young Henrys, Guitars In Bars, Novatech and Nexstage.

The Umbrella: Winter City Sounds Opening Street Party is free for the whole family so come and jump in puddles with us and kick off the 17 day festival in style.

Afterwards, keep the party going with the Umbrella Opening Night After Party at Casablabla where you can dance the night away to some of Adelaide’s best DJs.
