Music SA have just announced the Umbrella: Winter City Sounds program for 2017.

The program will showcase over 300 live music events across the state, hosted by more than 100 venues for two weeks from July 14 to July 30.

Umbrella have included a list of iconic Adelaide venues, such as the Jade, and Exeter Hotel, along with some of the programs more unique events including the returning Tram Sessions, bringing delightful sounds to listeners catching the tram on their daily commute.

Other exciting additions to the program will see local names such as Golden Era Records and Northern Sound System join forces to bring an OZ Hip-Hop Party and late night Club Rap hosted at the Fat Controller.

With support from the State Government’s Live Music Events Fund, the event has been made possible again in 2017 after the success of last year’s program; with over 260 music events held across Adelaide attended by more than 40,000 live music goers.

Music SA is a not-for-profit organisation that has been working to promote South Australia’s best contemporary musicians within the industry. They are the leading the way for bringing Adelaide’s music to new and old audiences. 

Lisa Bishop, General Manager of Music SA is looking to bring Adelaide’s music scene to a national audience, as well as to liven local venues in what is usually a quieter time of the year.

"Umbrella is now a staple on the South Australian events calendar, and is leading Adelaide's newest festival month with Guitars in Bars, Beer & BBQ Festival, Winter Reds, the AIR Awards, as well as the Riverbank activation,” said Ms. Bishop.

The program will have something for everyone, with featured artists ranging from genres such as Classical and Jazz music, through to hip-hop and psychedelic rock. Of course, Umbrella also promote themselves as a family friendly event. 

Some of the bigger national acts you can expect to see during the weeks in July include names like Montaigne, Spit Syndicate, Bag Raiders and more.
