is back in 2021 for its fifth instalment, delivering a live music program of more than 170 events across South Australia this winter.
Around PAE, we’re proud to be hosting four wonderful live music events as part of this program- including the closing night party!
Impromptu- Friday 16 July – Sunday 8 August
To build upon the success of our widely celebrated Wonderwalls Festival, ‘Impromptu’ will see pianos of all shapes and sizes land in front of some of the fines examples of local street art. We will then invite the mural artist to paint the piano into their existing work, creating a unique visual experience. Keep an eye out for the clues to the whereabouts and see if you can find one. Free to come and play!
