In light of the COVID-19 restrictions currently in place for South Australia, all Illuminate Adelaide events (free and ticketed) will be paused while we await further advice from SA Health.

Our team is still working hard to process refunds for the ticket buyers who have been affected by event cancellations, please check your emails and spam folders for our communications. We appreciate your patience while our team navigates this ever-changing situation.

We hope to be able to restart as soon as restrictions are lifted and will advise members of the public accordingly.

Stay home, stay safe.

(Music & Art After Dark)

We save the biggest party for last, with a multi-venue celebration of art, music and ideas. For one night only, MAAD will take over your favourite venues, galleries and laneways in the northwest corner of the CBD, lighting a fuse so you can experience the whole place go off. Featuring a closing DJ set from our Luminary Artists in Residence, The Avalanches, and encompassing live music, exhibitions, cinema and light installations from cutting-edge creators, MAAD brings out the best in the west with a party to remember.

Featuring events with:

  • Lion Arts Factory
