Arts lovers fly to Australia for the Adelaide Festival

Fans of the arts have descended on Adelaide today to kick off the Adelaide Festival in Australia. The arts festival is celebrating its 50th anniversary and 2013 marks the first time the festival will be run annually instead of biannually. The festival is often referred to as the ‘Edinburgh of Australia’ and will take place from today until the 17th March. The event will see a lot of changes this year, with fans of the festival eager to see what the new creative director David Sefton will have to offer. Thousands attended the festival's opening concert in the South Australian capital of Adelaide today and the crowds are expected to dominate the city for the duration of the event. The 17-day-long festival will feature visual arts, theatre, music, dance and film from around the world. On top of that, the festival will also hold a writers’ week, a literary festival where some of the world’s greatest writers and thinkers come together to share stories and adventures with one another. The festival season in Adelaide is known to locals as Mad March, due to the vast amount of festivals taking place all over the area. In addition to the Adelaide festival, the Adelaide Fringe is also taking place in March as well as “Hippy Week” at the botanic park and the Adelaide Comedy Festival. Since last year the Adelaide Festival has received government funding from the South Australian state to allow the festival to run annually. The festival was established in the late 1950’s by Sir Lloyd Dumas in a bid to bring South Australia a major festival that would highlight cultural exhibitions from around the world.
