Adelaide, you’ve got to admit, we’re super lucky with all of the music festivals coming out of our wazoo in the last few years. We love it, especially when the music gods decided that festivals in vineyards were a thing (and we’ll be forever grateful). A hot summer’s day complete with wine, food and (of course) music – does a day get much better than that?
It doesn’t, and by all accounts, Coriole Vineyards will be PUMPING on 29 December for the fifth year of the Here’s to Now
The festival will hear from Parisian electric jazz superstar FKJ, London soul innovator Jordan Rakei, 2 time Grammy nominated songwriter Nai Palm, Sydney’s soulful hip hop producer Jonti and Adelaide’s finest future jazz/afro beat 18 piece, The Shaolin Afronauts.
Joining them are Melbourne hip hop elite Man Made Mountain, Adelaide songstress Naomi Keyte with her full band, and independent nu soul singer Abby Howlett.
On the food front, their neighbours and McLaren Vale’s finest pizza makers PIzzateca will be cooking up their famous wood oven pizza. Joining them will be Adelaide’s Central Market’s very best Spanish caterers Comida Cooking Paella and other Spanish treats from the grill. Plus, to keep everyone cool you’ll be able to devour icecream from the Devour ice-cream truck who’ll pulling up and dishing out their delicious soft serve.
No event at Coriole would be complete without wine, so don’t worry, they’ll have all of their new releases on pour as well as ice cold beers, delicious cocktails and plenty of Prosecco! Plus, they’ll be running Adelaide’s smallest temporary pop up cocktail shed bar Billy Sunsets, serving sunset-themed red drinks for the quenchiest of quench times while the sun goes down.
With bus transfers available from the Adelaide Convention Centre, you’ll be able to get to and from the McLaren Vale vineyard safely.
So strap on your sandals, get your most bangin’ festival get-up ready, and get prepped for a day of wine, food and jammin’ tunes at Coriole.
