Open House content

From world-class theatre to thrilling dance, incredible music and unmissable opera, the Adelaide Festival is committed to making sure those who are at a financial disadvantage can still access all the Festival has to offer.



We want the Adelaide Festival to be for everyone and actively seek out out community groups and individuals who would love to experience the Festival but just cannot afford it.

In 2022, with the help of The Balnaves Foundation, we offered 2,000 Tix For Next To Nix across a selection of Festival events for just $5 each. These tickets were available in advance of the performance for those with a current Pension or Health Care Card.

Our Tix for Next to Nix have sold out for 2022. You can still purchase tickets at Concession price, or see below for information about our Pay What You Can tickets.

If you have any enquiries about the Tix for Next to Nix offer, please contact GOGO Events at



Low income earner? We have great news for you! If you have a current Health Care Card, Pension Card or full time student card, you can access Pay What You Can tickets to a selection of Adelaide Festival shows.

Tickets will be available for the shows listed below one hour prior at the box office.

Open House is generously supported by The Balnaves Foundation.
