Harvest Rock 2023
Last year, Adelaide was treated to the debut of new music festival Harvest Rock, from Secret Sounds (the folks behind Splendour in the Grass, Falls Festival, Heaps Good). Now, the two-day fest is back for a second round, and the program is stacked.
Expect a huge line-up that includes both local and international acts, with some favourites from the ’90s and early 2000s in particular. It’s all happening on Saturday October 28 and Sunday October 29 at Rymill Park/Murlawirrapurka and King Rodney Park/Ityamai-Itpina.
Headlining the two-day affair are ’90s funk and acid-jazz legends Jamiroquai and mononymous American rocker Beck, who’ll be performing hits from his decades-long career; both artists are performing Adelaide-exclusive shows, so you won’t catch them anywhere else in Australia. Other international acts descending on Adelaide for the festival are disco icons Nile Rodgers & Chic, Bright Eyes, Ladyhawke, Santigold, Warpaint and more.
From Australia, there’ll be sets and performances by the inimitable Paul Kelly, Thelma Plum, Ocean Alley, Chet Faker, Julia Jacklin, Baker Boy, Flight Facilities and Adelaide’s own Bad Dreems.
The food line-up might just be equally as impressive, with some big names attached. Arkhe’s Jake Kellie is bringing back Wildwood, the sit-down restaurant he debuted at last year’s Harvest Rock, while the Feastiville precinct will feature pop-ups from top Adelaide eateries. A new stage called Yes Chef will see chefs and mixologists joined in demonstrations by talent from the musical line-up, and a cellar door pop-up will be serving drinks throughout the festival.
Plus, a wellness precinct called Grape Escape for those needing a bit more rest and relaxation; the Little Harvest area for children; dedicated VIP areas and private suites overlooking the main stage; and more.
