When you hear of “Music Festivals”, what is the first thing that comes to your mind? These kind of things might be overlooked as an exclusive thing for millennials, but this is definitely not the case. Anyone can attend music festivals no matter their gender, age, shape, size, or nationality.

Adelaide may be famous for its wineries and posh restaurants, but what a lot may not know is that the city holds a number of hip music festivals every year. Party to your favourite DJ’s spin, or chill out while listening to that jazz band that you’ve been wanting to see.
