Indofest-Adelaide 2019: Together in harmony

MEDIA RELEASE – Indofest, Sunday 28 April 2019

Thousands will descend upon Victoria Square on Sunday 28 April in a display of vibrant colour and culture as the annual award-winning Indofest-Adelaide festival comes alive with dynamic sights, sounds and enticing flavours which will bring Indonesia to the heart of the City of Adelaide in Victoria Square/Tarntanyagga.

Celebrating its 11th year in Adelaide, Indofest-Adelaide is the largest Indonesian festival in the Southern hemisphere. 

A free, family-friendly and sustainable event, presenting a diverse and exciting program of traditional and contemporary Indonesian music and dance, children’s dance and craft workshops, cooking demonstrations, a marketplace and exhibitions representing the regional diversity of the Indonesian archipelago.

Indofest-Adelaide is a collaborative effort that represents all of South Australia’s Indonesian community groups, and is presented by the not-for-profit Australian-Indonesian Association of South Australia (AIASA).

Indofest-Adelaide’s Program Team, Juliana Christina, Berry J Luqman and Amalia Sosrodiredjo, describe the annual Indofest-Adelaide as “an opportunity to showcase the richness of culture that is representative not only of Indonesia as one of the most cultural diverse countries in the world, but also the diversity and depth of talent of our own Indonesian community here in Adelaide.

With Indofest-Adelaide 2019, we will bring the very best of Indonesian music, dance, art, tradition and, of course, cuisine to the very centre of our city to celebrate all things Indonesian.”

For over a decade Indofest-Adelaide has played an important role in bringing a deeper understanding of Indonesian culture to the people of Adelaide.

In 2017 Indofest has won the South Australian Governor’s Multicultural Awards.

Thanks to event sponsors, including the City of Adelaide, Multicultural Affairs of the Department of the Premier and Cabinet, and Education Partner Flinders University’s Jembatan, this event will transform the heart of Adelaide with all the very best Indonesia has to offer.
