History of Adelaide Festival

The Adelaide Festival began when Sir Lloyd Dumas, an entrepreneur and philanthropist with ambitions for his home city of SA found that there was no major arts festival in all of South Australia. In the late 1950s, Sir Lloyd Dumas envisioned a major arts festival that would bring world-class cultural exhibitions to South Australia. He founded what is now known as The Adelaide Festival with support from members of his community who had attended an event similar enough in nature for them all to share together - Edinburgh International Festival.

The Adelaide Festival of Arts has been an annual event since 1962, with each festival offering a fresh array of traditional and contemporary arts. Over the years it's seen performances from many notable artists like Marlene Dietrich, Irish comedian Spike Milligan,The Royal Shakespeare Company, Tito Puente, Bayanihan Dance Company, and Frankfurt Ballet.

The 2008 addition of Northern Lights, a spectacular display for Adelaide’s distinctive architecture, was an attention-grabbing attraction. The festival typically drew several hundred thousand visitors every year in the 21st century

The South Australian Government's support for the Adelaide Festival led to its becoming one of Australia’s most successful festivals. They developed original events including Writers' Week, WOMADelaide World Music Event and now known as "Adelaide International". This programming initiative was curated by SAMSTAG Museum from 2010-2014.

The Adelaide Festival Corporation was established in 1998 as a statutory corporation by The Adelaide Festival Corporation Act 1998 (AFC). Reporting to the Minister for Arts, it had several other functions such as those of Arts South Australia and The Art Gallery until late 2018 when they transferred them all into direct oversight from the Department of the Premier and Cabinet, Arts and Culture section.
