Stay COVID safe content

Being COVID Safe is a shared responsibility. We want you to enjoy the Festival and stay safe.

Please follow COVID Safe practices when attending Festival events.

The Adelaide Festival will be delivered under approved COVID plans following strict guidelines set by the South Australian Department of Health.

You will find event-specific COVID information in the Additional Info tab of each event page.


Due to the uncertainties of COVID19, Adelaide Festival have introduced updates to the ticketing policy giving patrons more flexibility in the case of illness or border closure.


Please note that theatres will be operating at 50% capacity, with a single empty seat between each patron in a row. Patrons must sit in their allocated seats as directed by venue management, and may not sit in the vacant seat next to another patron. In the event that capacity restrictions are lifted by SA Health before the event, there may be another ticket holder in the seat next to you.

Always remember to:

Abide by physical distancing requirements keeping 1.5m between yourself and others and sticking to your household/friendship groups
Practice good hand hygiene - wash your hands frequently and use hand sanitiser where provided
Listen out for COVID safe messages before, during and after events, read emails and venue signage and follow any directions given.
Follow the directions of COVID Marshals on site
