The Format Festival is our attempt to set up a DIY or artist run festival in Adelaide, kind of comparable to things like This Is Not Art in Newcastle and Next Wave in Melbourne. The aim is to make a two week event that’s sort of a blurring point between arts and activism. Format was first run in 2008 by Joel Catchlove and Ianto Ware, who effectively overran an attempt by Rino Del Zoppo to set up a new writing festival and turned it into a DIY festival. 

This year we’re running the Format festival from March 1st to 15th out of 145 Hindley Street, which has been very kindly rented to us by our pals at the Adelaide Fringe. We’re attempting to book up the entire two weeks with exhibits, shows, talks and general party good times. On the final weekend, we’ve got a zine fair, an evening of bike films, a whole pile of panels and workshops and some sort of street art bonanza.

This blog is for little updates and news about the festival.
