RCC Fringe is a fully-curated international arts happening; it’s a party hub; it’s a festival in its own right at the heart of the city in the best of all possible locations – the University of Adelaide. It’s a dining and drinking destination; it’s a 31-day music festival. And so much more. Here’s a small taste to whet your appetite.
Australian dance music legends The Presets will headline the inaugural Dusk Till Dawn; a late-night playground of immersive music, art and light. The Aria award-winning duo have been recognised worldwide for their dynamic live performances, playing hundreds of shows domestically and internationally, including key slots at renowned international music festivals such as Glastonbury, Coachella, SXSW, Exit, Melt and Splendour in the Grass. Now it’s our turn.
Pussy Riot: Riot Days
Ripped from the news headlines direct to Adelaide, the world’s best-known activists bring their worldwide hit to RCC Fringe for one week only. The iconic Russian feminist punk rock performance art collective tell their story in performance, film and music in this searing piece of gig theatre. Featuring the three key members of Pussy Riot on stage together for the first time ever, this will be historic and unmissable.
Orbital & Severed Heads
For one night only — two of the most influential names in the world of electronic music together on one epic bill. Orbital’s impressive live show is rightly acknowledged as one of the greatest live music spectacles you can ever experience. Joining them are the Australian cult legends, Severed Heads, whose influence is universally acknowledged by musos around the planet. These two artists together make one show you cannot miss.
