About Kontiki Racket, including food options & supporters.
Food & Drinks
This year’s Kontiki Racket is about more than just music. We’ve teamed up with Simmone Logue catering so that you’ll have tasty treats at the festival.
Whether it’s a tasty boardroom breakfast or a dainty canapé, everything from Simmone Logue is made with market-fresh seasonal produce, creative flair and more than a sprinkling of love.
We also have brewers, Batch Brewery on board who will be supplying tasty beverages across the night. Located in Marrickville and brewing since 2013, Batch Brewing Co makes a wide range of excellent, predominantly US-influenced craft beer. The brewery’s regulars include an American pale ale and an IPA, both mid-brown in colour. But the range changes every two weeks.
Gelatoman Gelatoman makes delicious hand crafted gelato from authentic Italian recipes.
Sacre Bleue make delicious canelés that have a caramelised crust and tender center have delighted generations of frenchies, including Sacrebleu! Slow cooked in the most traditional way in copper moulds from Bordeaux, the canelés use a few simple ingredients – flour, eggs, milk, sugar and a little bit of butter.
About Kontiki Racket
A visceral world of living and breathing new sounds, sinuous, sculptural and sizzling, in the form of a two-day festival event at Paddington Town Hall. Kontiki Racket counterpoints Ensemble Offspring with Adelaide’s celebrated string ensemble Zephyr Quartet, and throws in Hatched Academy artists past and current as well as a live installation of our latest line up of Offspring Bites videos. An immersive event showcasing the latest new music from around the globe in an expedition of invention.
Bringing the festival vibe will be Kontiki Bazaar, a market activating the giant Paddington Town Hall space by bringing together artist salon talks (featuring composers Christopher Fox (London), Cat Hope (Melbourne), Hilary Kleinig (Adelaide) and Nicole Murphy (Brisbane), a Meet the Artist social corner, a weird and wonderful instrument corner, a music swap table for all your old sheet music, CDs and LPs, and local food and beverage providers and local artisans.
Finally as part of Kontiki Racket we will be launching our 2019 Offspring Bites release, featuring world premiere recordings by Sam James, Holly Harrison, Bree van Reyk, Andrea Keller and Melody Eötvös – with screenings of the video art commissioned to complement these stunning new works written for and recorded by Ensemble Offspring by Peter Humble, Rowena Crowe, Sam James and Su-An Ng.
