Umbrella Festival acknowledges and pay our respects to the Kaurna people of the Adelaide Plains and the traditional custodians whose ancestral lands on which our festival takes place. We acknowledge that these lands were never ceded and remain as important to the living First Nations peoples today and value their ongoing connection to the land, desert, sea and culture. We pay respects to all Elders: past, present and emerging.
With over 175 events statewide this Umbrella Festival season, it’s hard to know where to start! Luckily we’ve got you covered with some handy gig round-ups in the lead-up to July!
