We've blinked at it's already Fringe Season here in Adelaide, heading further into mad March and the festival season! This year, our Juice Traders team is super stoked to be providing you with some show, food and booze recommendations. We've even collaborated with some of these acts and vendors to giveaway a host of fringe-themed prizes! This week our Juice Traders team are sharing our top Fringe show recommendations!
From just $30 per ticket, and at a reasonable time of 6:30pm every evening, Juice Traders take on this must see show - an epic, mesmerising and glitter-filled twist on Cabaret!
Our team had a blast, being taken on a desert festival journey where community, freedom, self-expression and love are celebrated. Think Burning Man vibes!
These key themes are showcased through incredible singing, dancing, (jazz, tap and lyrical), costumes and music from the 70's through to now, from an array of entertaining genres including pop, rock, indie and R&B (think Jamiroquai, Vengabus vibes) - the nostalgic tunes we love here at Juice Traders. You'll find yourself singing and tapping along the whole way through - we sure were!
With no main character, the show rather highlights these key themes with each artists' spotlight moment, and in doing so reveals their incredible array of talents. At the same time, the cast pepper this desert story with a sense of companionship; their dynamic group choreography leaving our team wide-eyed and awe-inspired.
The first half of Arcadia festival by day expresses the themes of community and love, before a dust storm hits and clears to signify the end of daylight, and takes the audience into Arcadia by Night. The show moves towards softer free formed materials and costumes taking inspiration from the flower child movement expressing their 'self' with elegance and beauty. The show hits a crescendo of eccentric costumes and colourful accessories, bring the flamboyant party celebrating freedom to life - a fantastic finale!
The entire performance end to end is feel-good and playful entertainment with incredible and engaging performers - a show that you won't want to miss this Fringe season!

AFFORDABLE PRE & POST FRINGE BOOZE PICKS:
We've curated a range of on-the-go drinks we think pair perfectly with a night at the garden, or as you wander through the vibrance of East End's street party... whether you're a red, white or non-alcoholic drinker, we have you covered legends!
For the red drinker...
A local favourite from the Adelaide Hills. This big boy wine is for anyone who enjoys something bold, structured, and tannic. Still juicy but definitely something robust and full! A Nebbiolo that still is natural in its creation, but classically lovely in its execution.
For the white drinker...
Another local favourite from Mount Compass in SA! Textural and memorable with very Small yields from the hills in 2020, but that being said the quality of what went to bottle is "Saaahhh Gouda"! Thanks Mark and Alicia!
Something tasty minus the alcohol...
