As one of the oldest public buildings in South Australia, Adelaide Gaol is a unique venue for a blues music festival.

The inaugural Gaol Blues was a great success in 2016, with nearly 1,000 people attending.

It really is a great atmosphere, so come along, bring a picnic blanket and enjoy the cool music, the warm sunshine and some great food and drinks.
