Scouted 2023 is FRIDAY 4 AUGUST, kicking off at 6.30pm!

We can’t wait to go gig-hopping with you to see some of our best up-and-coming acts!

Plan your night using our venue map and schedule.


Your fave local live music West End venues Jive, Nexus Arts and The Lab will spread the love in hosting this year’s Scouted, featuring some of SA’s hottest unsigned acts. Ranging from noisey-post-punk to electronica, folk-pop to classic indie (the list keeps going..), the selected artists form one hell-of-a lineup: Chloe Veronica, Emerauld, INFINITIES, Molly Rocket, Mum Thinks Blue, Purée, Stormy-Lou, Sunsick Daisy, Tonix, The Tullamarines, TUSHAR &Twine. 

Scouted is presented on 4 August and coincides with the Australian Independent Record Labels Association’s annual Indie-Con Australia conference, held here on Kaurna Land, Adelaide, Australia’s UNESCO designated City of Music. This year Indie-Con is being held at The Mercury, August 2-4.

Scouted is generously supported by AIR Indie-Con Australia Conference, the South Australian Government’s Music Development Office and SAE Creative Media Institute. Scouted is proudly performed on Kaurna Land.
