Stace Cadet will play Saturday night.

The party kicked off with a packed City of Adelaide Tour Village enjoying Vanessa Amorosi last week and continues each evening this week with amazing music before an amazing finale featuring Morgen + Tink and Stace Cadet.

Here’s what you can expect each evening:

Hump-day Special (get out there this arvo!)

Nick Fahey, aka DJ Cloak & Dagga, will perform throughout the afternoon to help office workers relax into a fun evening. Working as a DJ for nearly two decades, Fahey is a regular performer at Supermild, Sugar, Beer and BBQ Fest, the Garden of Unearthly Delights, the Crown and Sceptre, and the Austral. The DJ taps into all genres of music to connect with his listeners and he’s sure to get you over the hump of the working week.

A great place to unwind after the busiest day of the working week, head over to the Knock Off Hour area by the main stage and relax with a $6 pint of Hahn Superdry varieties or a glass of Seppeltsfield 2022 Barossa Grenache Rose.

Throwback Thursday

If there was ever a day to slip on some Lycra when not on a bike this is it. Break out the baggy fluro, tease your hair and tie it with a scrunchie, or do your best Tom Cruise because the Village is hosting an 80s themed party on Thursday. From 6:30pm, DJ Tommy Tequila will spin his greatest retro hits to take you back in time as you groove into the weekend.

The 80s vibe starts with BMX bandits showing off their mad skills at the BMX Freestyle demonstrations. The Nitro Circus and X Games athletes will put on 20-minute performances at noon and 2pm.

To end the week, chill out with a mix of R&B, blues, Jazz and storytelling by multi-instrumentalist singer-songwriter Rob Edwards at 5:00pm. Edwards combines his passion for his Indigenous heritage and his family’s story through the stolen generation to spread cultural and political messages to entertain as well as move the audience.

The music will be the perfect match to the range of food options available, including Adelaide’s Comida, Fine and Fettle, Fiesta Tajine and Rolling Regions by Sprout.

Speed-up Saturday

It may be the last day of the City of Adelaide Tour Village, but that doesn’t mean things are going to slow down. Head to the Tour Village to get the inside scoop on who is likely to win on Sunday and then enjoy gigs that are sure to get you on your feet and dancing.

Adelaide’s finest female DJs, Morgen + Tink will swap dark nightclubs for sunny afternoon sets at 3:00pm and 6:30pm. Boasting an electric onstage presence, the duo has played alongside international sensations like DIPLO, Guns and Roses, Liam Gallager and STEVE AOKI. They have also featured at popular festivals such as Groovin the Moo, Stereosonic, and Australian Fashion Week.

The energy will continue to grow with the upbeat, electronic music of Australian DJ, vocalist and producer, Stace Cadet from 7:30pm. As well as being one of Triple J’s Hottest 100 featured artists, Stace Cadet was nominated for two ARIA awards in 2020 and 2021, and most recently created the music for the Sydney 2022 New Year’s Eve fireworks.

Performing alongside Stace Cadet on Saturday night is ‘Adelaide’s reigning disco queen,’ Mell Hall. The Melbourne-born DJ has toured with Disclosure, Basement Jaxx, Crazy P, Norman Jay, Todd Terry, Late Nite Tuff Guy and Weiss to name a few. Her performance alongside the likes of Stace Cadet will raise the energy to the maximum and get everyone off their seats and onto the dance floor on the final night.
