This year the Old Royal Adelaide Hospital is hosting a stellar new music festival called, Root Down, on the 28th of October. They will be pumping out a huge lineup of some of the finest artists in Australia, with SA's very own Luke Million headlining the festival. It's set to be one of the most interesting events this year, allowing the public to come and join in on the culture and energetic roots from around the world.
The festival is out to show audiences how to engage with music, visual art, and street performers while experiencing the new crossover between the electronic and roots worlds. There will be wonderful things to get involved with while at the event, such as browsing Market Stalls, Exhibitions, Vinyl Distros, Food Trucks and much more.
“The line-up has obvious under-tones of an Electronic/Live crossover but without drawing attention to it, this is about the link between live instrumentation and creativity in collaboration and how today’s roots are taking an electronic shape. This is more than just a music festival, it’s a demonstration of culture.” - S.Pitkin
Root Down will be the first music-based festival to be held in the old hospital after it's recent closure, the event organisers are hoping that this will show a new and creative way to use the old space. Tickets are currently on sale at a wicked price, so hurry up and get yourself one before you miss out on this wonderful opportunity!
