Umbrella: Winter City Sounds is an open access festival. The 2-week live music festival offers an exciting smorgasbord of curated live music projects and other performances across Adelaide metropolitan and CBD to warm and illuminate the colder weeks.
Partners include the Adelaide City Council, Guitars in Bars with generous funding assistance from the Australia Council, the Australian Hotels Association (SA Branch) and the Music Development Office (MDO) with the South Australian Tourism Commission through the Live Music Events Fund.
In 2017 Umbrella hosted a program of over 300 live music events across more than 100 different venues and locations throughout Adelaide. In 2018 the festival will run from 13th until 29th July, and will see hundreds of open access events as well as curated events across our wonderful city, which was officially named a UNESCO City of Music in 2015.
