The Adelaide Festival is as much shaped by people and place as it in turn shapes people and place; its identity is a weird and wild shifting thing. It is not owned by one individual, but belongs to everyone.
Adelaide Festival 60 Years is an astounding cacophony of images and tales that revel in the life of the Festival since its founding in 1960 - remembering what it was, anticipating what it might be.
The tales are told by the many - choreographers, actors, singers, artistic directors, audience members, writers, lighting designers, arts administrators, curators and more.
Stunning full-colour photography captures moments in time, both sweeping and intimate, woven together to form an important story of culture and ideas across 60 years of history and 35 iconic festivals.
