Adelaide Fringe literally takes over the entire city with over 900 events staged in pop up venues in parks, warehouses, lane-ways and empty buildings as well as established venues such as theatres, hotels, art galleries, cafes and town halls.
Within the Adelaide Fringe is the Garden of Unearthly Delights, unrivalled as Australia’s most vibrant and dynamic outdoor festival precinct. Each year, The Gardeners of Unearthly Delights, a partnership between Strut and Fret Production House and Buxton Walker, create a unique festival playground including multiple performance venues, bars, carnival rides, an array of world foods, market stalls, and the most unexpected sideshow surprises.
With the reverence and charm of a 19th Century parlour ensemble, Vintage Quartestra pay homage to some of the 20th Century's greatest, yet unsung, composers: those with Saturday morning cartoons as their muse. Consider for a moment the thrill and valor of the Spider-Man, Transformers and Astro Boy themes, the memorable jigs of Maisy and Spongebob Squarepants, or the exuberance and innocence of My Secret Valley, or the Smurfs.
Featuring Justin Fermino (Cope St Parade), Sam Golding (Sousaphonics), Lara Goodridge (Baby et Lulu), Mark Harris (Lah-Lah), and arranged by Lucian McGuiness.
