Racquets and Strings Festival

As part of the Adelaide International, Memorial Drive is excited to present the Racquets and Strings Festival showcasing some of South Australia’s best local artists across a festival stage positioned on the outside courts and Centre Stage which is featured on the famous Memorial Drive Centre Court.

In 2020, the Racquets and Strings Festival will bring music and tennis together in a cool summer atmosphere, featuring great food, wine, beer and spirt offerings.

The event will showcase music across two stages:

  • Centre Stage – Stage located on centre court with music between the day and night session
  • Festival Stage – Stage located on the Village Lawn with live entertainment throughout the day

The City of Adelaide is a UNESCO City of Music and the Adelaide International is working with WASABI Entertainment to showcase 30 local South Australian Acts over 2 stages.

To experience the festival, simply purchase a ticket to the Adelaide International at Ticketmaster.
