This July the Adelaide International Guitar Festival takes place at the Adelaide Festival Centre from the 17th – 20th July with InterContinental Adelaide a proud sponsor. This will be an eventful weekend featuring the newly established Adelaide International Guitar Orchestra, experiential workshops, guitar art and performances from over 300 artists both originating from Adelaide and abroad. This year’s festival is once again curated by Slava Grigoryan, his third year as Artistic Director.
“I’m really happy with the program and the mix of artists and genres,” Grigoryan explains about thisyear’s Festival. “Each year we try to introduce a few different elements of programming; this year the new changes are the guitar orchestra and the relationship with the Cordoba Guitar Festival.”
This year’s program is an exciting mix of tradition and innovation, which includes classical guitarists such as Judicael Perroy and Pepe Romero and Gypsy and Flamenco kings Jose Antonio Rodriguez and Stochelo Rosenberg. Away from the Flamenco and classical streams, highlights of Grigoryan’s 2014 program include guitar shredder Guthrie Govan and the innovative Debashish Bhattacharya, who mixes Indian classical with blues on his homemade slide guitars
