Submissions for Adelaide Cabaret Festival 2021 are now open.

Adelaide Cabaret Festival is a curated festival (not an open access festival) and all programming decisions are at the discretion of the Artistic Director and Adelaide Festival Centre.

I want the 2021 Adelaide Cabaret Festival to be a reminder of the power of the cabaret form. I want it to be provocative and challenging as well as sexy and fun. We're living in a time of great turbulence in world history and the festival should represent it, make sense of it, satirise it, harmonise it. Surprise us! Dare us! Enchant us! Engage us! Enrage us! Alan Cumming, 2021 Artistic Director
