Adelaide’s local music scene is about to be reborn with Proof of Life Festival.
Proof of Life is a new idea: an opportunity for everyone. The festival is here to promote all that Adelaide’s music scene has to offer, from artists and venues to events and discussions. Taking over the CBD from November 6-14, it’s the kind of event that any local music fan or lover of this city will be frothing over.
It all kicks off this Friday at the Exeter Hotel, and you won’t even have to pay an entry fee. There are a variety of exciting activities organised, from this weekend’s busking challenge across the city (open to anyone and everyone), to discussions surrounding a heap of interesting topics, such as women in music. There will be plenty of noteworthy guest speakers involved, too. Proof of Life additionally strives to promote other home-grown festivals and events, such as Scumfest, Format Festival and the SA Music Awards.
If that’s not enough to lure you in, there’s also a chance to ‘choose your own adventure’. Make your own way around or follow one of the walking trails throughout the city to the best locations and events. There’s even a handy interactive map.
The aim of the festival is to promote what an exciting time in SA music this is, to get people out and involved. It's for bands and venues to push boundaries and attract new crowds to new music. Though more of a campaign this year, Proof of Life hopes to something of a Fringe or SALA for music in 2016.
Big things are coming, Adelaide!
