Giant Sing Along 

14 Feb - 15 Mar

12 – 7pm

Lot Fourteen

Corner of North Terrace and East Terrace, Adelaide SA


Adelaide Fringe is hosting the karaoke to end all karaoke! We don't often get the opportunity to belt out our favourite ballads to our heart's content - but at Giant Sing Along you'll be welcomed with open arms (and microphones with judgement-free, built-in autotune).

Presented by Daily tous les jours, a Montreal based art and design studio who specialise in world-class, show-stopping public interactive installations, Giant Sing Along is a field of microphones just waiting for you to take your singing voices for a spin.

You can bring together your fave people to yodel along to some iconic top hits or chant a nostalgic throwback from yesteryear. You don't even have to remember the words. That's what the big screens are for! Come along, have a laugh, have some fun, and let loose with the joy of song.

​Celebrate Fringe's 60th birthday with a historic skip down memory lane. Fringe Walk is on now!
