As November almost draws to a close, we find ourselves reflecting on a month of brilliant South Australian music, where approx. 2000 artists played at over 650 live music events as a part of Good Music Month, MusicSA’s new annual state-wide music festival. We loved celebrating music with 341 gigs held in the heart of the City of Adelaide and Adelaide’s West End, 244 gigs across the greater metropolitan area and 71 gigs across 19 regional locations.
To celebrate a great month of South Aussie live music, we are supporting some great closing parties across SA. Tag along to one (or more!) of these events and celebrate all things live music with us.
