About One12 Festival
Thebarton Theatre and Origin Live are excited to announce the launch of a new annual festival supporting local SA artists – One12 Festival. 22 bands across 5 nights in June 2021 will showcase the incredible local talent in SA hosted at the iconic Thebarton Theatre.
The festival is supported by the South Australian Government’s Music Development Office.
Now more than ever, patrons are excited to get back to live entertainment and support local bands who are eager to get back on stage after the gig scene hit pause in 2020. Without international artists touring Australia, emerging artists have the opportunity to showcase their talent and grow a following.
Each band will be filmed, recorded and streamed by SA filming company Amplify This. The way we experience music is changing, so the ability to be professionally recorded with a live crowd is a major opportunity for the emerging bands as it will help them grow their online presence and following.
Thebarton Theatre is usually on the gig bucket list for any artist in Australia, and especially for locals. Not only does this grant support local artists, but also Thebby in what is usually a quiet season. With over 80 shows postponing or cancelling in 2020, the ability to reopen the Thebby doors and welcome patrons back to live entertainment is crucial for the venue to remain viable. Thebby has a great passion for supporting local talent and is excited to welcome emerging artists in various stages of their music careers onto her stage this June.
In a world-first on Friday 18 June, 4 indie-rock bands will compete in a game of ‘rock, paper, scissors’ to determine the line-up live on the night. Not only does this keep the crew on their toes, but it encourages patrons to experience the entire line-up and discover new bands, rather than just seeing their local favourites.
Thanks to the support of the Music Development Office, the One12 Festival allows local artists to get back on stage to showcase their talent and grow their following, provides a great night out for patrons who have been missing the thriving live-music scene in Adelaide and helps Thebby get back on her feet in an uncertain time of live entertainment.
