Regional areas have seen a boom in visiting performance artists over the past few years. Federal, State and Local Governments have all taken an active part in highlighting and encouraging major acts and exhibitions to visit the major regional centres.
Each year, Mt Gambier hosts the Generations in Jazz festival, the largest of its kind in Australia. James Morrison, the World reknown jazz musician, is a big part of this festival and has established a Jazz Academy in Mt Gambier, under the auspices of UniSA.
