Lorde, Camp Cope & More Announced For Adelaide Festival 2023

The annual Adelaide Festival has unveiled its full program for 2023, featuring a stack of notable local and international names.

Lorde, Camp Cope, Allday, BARKAA, Kobie Dee, and more will be coming to Adelaide to perform at the festival. That’s in addition to the WOMADelaide bill, which has already lined up performances from the likes of Florence + The Machine, Bon Iver, Billy Bragg, and Genesis Owusu.

Lorde – ‘Solar Power’

The 38th Adelaide Festival will run for 17 days and nights from Friday, 3rd March to Sunday, 19th March, offering 52 events in theatre, music, opera, dance, media and visual arts.

Ruth Mackenzie, who’s set to direct the 2024, 2025 and 2026 Adelaide Festivals, said in a statement: “I see my role as enthusiastic spruiker for the program initiated by [former directors] Neil and Rachel. The international quality of their festivals more than doubled audiences over the past six years and it leaves our new team well placed to continue their legacy.”
