Adelaide Fringe Festival – Adelaide 14 February-15 March 2020 https://adelaidefringe.com.au/
We completely take over Adelaide, its surrounding suburbs and even some regional areas of South Australia for 31 magical days and nights each year. The city practically pulses with creativity.
Venues big and small, pop-up and permanent house thousands of artists from all over Adelaide, Australia and the world. Around most of Adelaide’s corners, whether in an alleyway, a tent, a pub, a laundromat or a pool, you’ll be bound to find Fringe goodness in some shape or form.
We’re not-for-profit and an open access festival—we don’t have a curator handpicking shows. Anyone who wants to be a part of the Adelaide Fringe, can*! We provide a way for artists across all disciplines to share their work with the world.
With free events, ground breaking work, new talent, innovative thinking and original voices, we are for everyone. To put it simply, we’re here to unleash the fun!

Acts as eminent and eclectic as Lenny Kravitz, Hozier, Counting Crows and the Zac Brown Band will all take the stage at this laid-back ode to generations of music.

Songkran Water Festival – Thailand. 13 – 15 April 2020 Wiki-Songkran
Mid-April marks the coming of a new year in Thailand, but you won’t see much fireworks and Champagne here. Instead, the country takes the combination of national holiday and hot weather as an excuse to erupt into a massive water fight – the stuff of every kid’s dreams. Old and young, friends or strangers, everyone is fair game in what might be the world’s biggest splash fest.
