Adelaide Festival Centre 40th Anniversary

June 11th, 2013

In 2013 The Adelaide Festival Centre is celebrating 40 years of hosting arts, culture and entertainment from every corner of the world. Since its opening in 1973, the Festival Theatre remains Adelaide’s preeminent venue for the world’s finest artists, while also providing a venue of international standard for countless performances, community events, and local companies.  The iconic building is much more than a performance venue: it is impossible to imagine the city without the Festival Centre, which has come to symbolise the cultural heart of South Australia. Officially opened on 2 June, 1973, it was Australia’s first performing arts centre built in a capital city, beating the Sydney Opera House to completion at about one tenth of the cost.
