From world-class theatre to thrilling dance, incredible music and unmissable opera, the Adelaide Festival is committed to making sure those who are at a financial disadvantage can still access all the Festival has to offer.



We want the Adelaide Festival to be for everyone and are seeking out community groups and individuals who would love to experience the Festival but just cannot afford it.

In 2022, with the help of The Balnaves Foundation, we are offering 2,000 Tix For Next To Nix across a selection of Festival events for just $5 each. These tickets will be available in advance of the performance for those with a current Pension or Health Care Card.

Click the button below to register your interest in the Tix for Next to Nix program. After you apply, a representative of our program partner, GOGO Events, will get in touch within 10 business days to confirm your eligibility, discuss any accessibility requirements, and guide you through the next steps to purchase your tickets.
