What is Harvest Rock?

    Announced by the State Government in 2021, Harvest Rock is a new major live music event for Adelaide and will showcase the best international and South Australian artists along with the finest wine producers, chefs and produce South Australia has to offer. 

    What benefits will Harvest Rock bring to the City of Adelaide?

    Harvest Rock will attract music enthusiasts and visitors from interstate and overseas, as well as local and regional visitors to the city’s Park Lands, providing a boost to Adelaide’s CBD, as well as hotels, hospitality and retail businesses in the associated precincts and surrounds. 

    Event organisers estimate Harvest Rock will attract minimum attendances of 20,000 to 25,000 patrons per day, with ambition of 40 per cent of attendees visitors to the State. 

    The organisers are committed to prioritising the use of South Australian based suppliers, vendors, accommodation, and industry, to deliver and support Harvest Rock.

    Where will the event take place?
