It’s that time of the year again, The Adelaide Fringe season is almost upon us. Whether you spend your time visiting the mystical and magical Garden of Unearthly Delights, the quirky escape that is Gluttony, drinking at one of Adelaide’s many great venues, getting up to mischief at the exclusive Fringe Club or partying at The Royal Croquet Club, there’s always something to do. As our city prepares to turn into complete and utter artistic chaos, more exciting announcements are being made - and this week is no different.
With a stellar line up of live music last year, including Bonobo, Mr Scruff, Remi, DJ Shadow & Cut Chemist, the boys at The Royal Croquet Club have pulled out a huuuuuge 2016 line up. Presenting, Flight Facilities and Norman Jay MBE!
Finishing off 2015 with headline slots at Beyond The Valley and Field Day, the guys behind Flight Facilities have seen massive success across the world and Australia, with a highlight being their own orchestral showcase at Sidney Myer Music Bowl with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra. This year, they return to Royal Croquet Club to play their popular Triple J Mix-Up Exclusive: Decade Mix.
Headlining on the Saturday night is British king Norman Jay. Appointed an MBE for his deejaying and services to music, Norman Jay is famous for his involvement in ridiculous unlicensed warehouse parties in the 1980's and his crazy skills in creating a unique sound that blends between genres. He returns to Adelaide to treat us to his infectious grooves that'll have the entirety of Victoria Square pumping.
