There will also be a mini pop-up wellness market, coffee and basic catering (however, we encourage you to dine in and around the square and eat local).
**Beautiful Mayhem is created by Adam Page and Jarrad Payne and supported by the South Australian Government. A direct reaction to how COVID-19 restrictions have had a profound impact on our lives as musicians the world over, Beautiful Mayhem is as much about the musicians as it is about the audience. Beginning with an explanation and warm-up from Adam Page, followed by a group meditation led by Rainer Jozeps, instrumentalists of any age and ability are then invited to join in the noisy chorus by following simple instructions on a big screen and playing along to a recorded track. It will be noisy, it will be messy, but most of all it will feel GOOD to let go a little! Bring your instrument along to be a part of something truly cathartic and beautifully chaotic! Players of all levels invited to create some Beautiful Mayhem!
Dine in the surrounding area of the city and really get local.
An initiative of the Adelaide Economic Development Agency (a subsidiary of the City of Adelaide).
