The Palais was used to great effect on Tuesday evening for Kurt Vile’s solo show, providing fantastic atmospherics, as the idiosyncratic and talented troubadour played in front the magical moonlit vista on a balmy night.

The Riverbank Palais is proving to be a fantastic addition to the Adelaide Festival program this year, hosting a diverse range of performances and forums, including The Duke, a theatre piece by Shôn Dale-Jones. The play begins its limited three night season on the floating venue from this evening, with half the proceeds going to Save the Children’s child refugee efforts.
