Roach was joined by Ollie English, Corey Theatre, Alana Jagt, Nathan May, and DJ Jessi Jacoby to kick off a winter music festival that will run until Sunday 28 July.

Music SA was established in 1997 and is a not-for-profit organisation committed to the advocacy and development of contemporary music in South Australia.

CEO Lisa Bishop is excited about the lineup of events in the festival program including Music SA’s signature event Scouted which returns to the East end of Adelaide for its third year.

“…Its testament to the fact that the arts are engrained in our DNA and we truly are a UNESCO City of Music!”

– Lisa Bishop, CEO Music SA

The full program boasts an array of talent performing in venues across Adelaide. There are approximately 288 ticketed and free events on offer which are conveniently listed on the Umbrella Winter City Sounds website.

Umbrella Winter City Sounds runs from 12 – 28 July 2019. Visit https://umbrellaadelaide.com.au/ to book.
