The Hindley Street Music Hall, Adelaide’s newest state-of-the-art live music venue, will open its doors for the first time on Thursday September 15, celebrating with an incredible line-up that includes DMA’s, West Thebarton, Wafia, and Jess Day, all hosted by South Australia’s kings of radio, Ben and Liam.


The Hindley Street Music Hall (HSMH), located at 149 Hindley St, Adelaide, is South Australia’s newest, 1800-capacity live music venue in the heart of Adelaide’s energetic entertainment precinct.


In development over the last year, the $6 million HSMH, a collaborative project between Secret Sounds, Live Nation, and Five Four Entertainment, has been a large-scale redevelopment of the previous HQ nightclub that has transformed the interior and exterior of the building, both structurally and aesthetically.


With over 135 tonnes of concrete and furnishings removed from the original site, the interior has been completely remodelled to include a split-level venue design that provides exceptional viewing experiences from the whole venue, premium balcony viewing areas, modern and spacious artist green rooms, and freight lifts for seamless artist load-ins.


The establishment of the new HSMH with involvement from Secret Sounds and Live Nation will see continued development in the South Australian music sector as a premier touring destination, with artists including Vance Joy, US Rapper Freddie Gibbs, legendary punk idols Pennywise, and 90’s pop icons Hanson along with key Australian acts Ziggy Alberts, The Chats, already secured to play at the venue.


Honourable Peter Malinauskas Premier of South Australia said:


“The Hindley Street Music Hall is a great boon for the South Australian music and hospitality sectors. Not only does it deliver a state-of-the-art venue in the heart of the city, but it will provide South Australians with career pathways in both the music and hospitality industries.


Further, with the Hindley Street Music Hall now open we hope to see more and more international artists and performers return to perform in South Australia.”


Paul Piticco, Co-Founder and Co-CEO Secret Sounds said:


“We are so proud to bring Hindley Street Music Hall, which we have worked incredibly hard to craft, to the thriving Adelaide entertainment scene. It’s also exciting to be joining and working with the burgeoning music and arts community here.  Secret Sounds and Live Nation are dedicated to the city and state, and have launched three festivals, and now this amazing venue in the last few years. We look forward to bringing the best artists in the world to the Adelaide whilst creating a new platform for SA artist’s to launch themselves from.”


Venue co-owner and Powderfinger band member John Collins Said


“I’m incredibly excited to open the Hindley Street Music Hall, a venue designed with the core focus of creating absolute connection between artists and fans, delivering the ultimate live music experience. I look forward to seeing the Hindley Street Music Hall contribute to and further develop Adelaide’s rich musical culture and become an artist and fan-favourite for years to come.”


The Hindley Street Music Hall offers special thanks to supporting partner the South Australian Government’s Music Development Office for assistance in developing the opening event.
