The Semaphore Music Festival is a boutique music and arts event presenting the cream of South Australian home grown original music to a niche market of new music lovers.


The Semaphore Foreshore Reserve will come alive over the weekend with craft beer and wine, food trucks, the new artist market and carnival rides for the kids. In its 12th year the SMF is held annually over the October Long Weekend  on the Semaphore Foreshore Reserve and in surrounding pubs, clubs and venues.

Located in the Adelaide metropolitan region, 20 minutes from the CBD in the beach suburb of Semaphore, the SMF is accessible to everyone with trains from the city departing every hour.
