Drones are back at Adelaide Fringe in 2023, following on from the award-winning show Sky Song comes Electric Skies, a multi sensory light, sound and drone spectacular, launching 500 drones over one hundred metres into the night sky.

Across two unforgettable nights, see the skies over Pakapakanthi/Victoria Park light up with a multi-sensory, electrifying drone show woven with First Nations language and traditional songs. Electric Skies will feature specially made music from the Electric Fields duo Zaachariaha Fielding and Michael Ross, with Zaachariaha’s paintings also inspiring many of the drone animations in the sky.

Electric Skies collaborators include Electric Fields, Gluttony, Adelaide Fringe, Drone Sky Shows, Novatech, AEDA and the APY Collective.
