Why become a Friend?

Ticket sales cover only a fraction of the cost of presenting the diverse programs we offer, so in order for us to continue to bring the world's best to Adelaide we need your help. The Adelaide Festival Friends, Angels and Patrons program was created to support three key areas of our work.


  1. outstanding international performances, exhibitions andevents bringing the world's best to Adelaide
  2. outstanding Australian work showcasing the best of Australia
  3. outstanding Indigenous work connecting Indigenous artists with the world

Membership includes a host of benefits that will enhance your Festival experience while helping support our continued success. You can join at any point throughout the year. Memberships are biennial and include one launch and Festival period.

Friends have for years provided a bedrock of support for the Festival.
