The City of Churches is set to be the go-to destination for music-lovers this November, having just announced one of the country’s best and most exciting music festivals for 2022.

Dubbed Harvest Rock, the nascent two-day event is set to take over Adelaide from Saturday, November 19th until Sunday, November 20th as the festivities spill out across Rymill and King Rodney Parks.

Described as a celebration of music, food, wine, and brew, it’s undoubtedly the killer lineup that has received the lion’s share of publicity lately, with the festival headlined by none other than the iconic Jack White. Performing his only Aussie show for the fest, the blues-rock legend will bring his prolific back catalogue to the main stage as he makes his long-awaited return to the country.

But it’s far from over there, with a plethora of other massive names making their way to the South Australian capital in November. The festival includes a massive showing of international acts, including the legendary Black Crowes, the genre-bending Khruangnbin, Sam Fender, Groove Armada, Cat Power, Hot Chip, The Lumineers, and even honorary Aussie Kurt Vile, who will make a one-off appearance at Harvest Rock.

But the local talent isn’t ignored either, boasting the kegendary Crowded House, The Avalanches, Courtney Barnett, Tones And I, The Teskey Brothers, The Living End, and much, much more. Put simply, it’s a music-lover’s delight, with the lineup almost custom-designed to be the bill that keeps on giving, with the likes of Ruby Fields, Electric Fields, TOWNS, You Am I, Meg Mac, and Alex Cameron serving as a testament to the fact.

Even then though, the inaugural Harvest Rock is only just getting started, with gourmands, gluttons and gourmets invited to partake in the Festiville Stage, which will feature chefs and mixologists showcasing collaborations between some of Australia’s finest foodies, alongside talent from the musical bill.

The event is also set to feature an indulgent feast of gastronomical offerings, including a food space with top tier culinary delights plus an elegant marquee where lovers of the edible arts can book and enjoy a special seating carefully curated and delivered by renowned chef and restauranteur, Jake Kellie of arkhé and former Head Chef of Singapore’s Burnt Ends. This is also in addition to a park up of food trucks which offers the usual festival fare, amongst many other feasting flavours.

Likewise, Harvest Rock also offers a number of destination bars, artfully curated by acclaimed Australian wine critic and prolific personality Nick Stock. In addition to providing carefully tailored beverages from the experts at Archie Rose Distilling Co., the Wine Bar and the Champagne Bar offer some of the finer drops. Elsewhere, the beer hall caters to lovers of the brew, while an alcohol-free temperance bar provides a multitude of other options.

Lastly, Harvest Rock aims to be an inclusive event for fun-lovers of all-ages, with the Little Harvest serving as a mini festival designed to keep the little ones occupied and entertained. Tickets to the inaugural edition of Harvest Rock are on sale now via their official website, with full ticketing and lineup details available below.
