Polish festival Unsound returns to its home in the Southern Hemisphere for two massive nights (14 & 15 July), each with two events: Unsound Adelaide and Unsound Club. With a range of artists from Australia and around the world – including rapper bbymutha, visual artist Robin Fox, and Scottish sound artist Kode9 – Unsound is one for those who love something new, something exciting, and something bold. 

KLASSIK underground combines visual art with classical music, with Tahlia Petrosian returning alongside a new line-up of musicians from the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra and the renowned Gewandhaus Orchestra from Leipzig, Germany. Both concerts, which are held at Dom Polski Centre on 21 & 22 July, include a new repertoire featuring songs from Bartók, Cage, and Stravinsky. 

Live @ The Lab returns, with a line-up that includes both local and interstate favourites. The series kicks off tomorrow on 7 July with Slowmango and The Bait Fridge. Rapper, composer, and drummer Dobby takes over Nexus Arts for an electrifying live performance on 29 July.
