Adelaide Fringe

We were born 58 years ago (although we don’t look a day over 25) and we’ve grown up to become the South­ern Hemisphere’s largest, and Australia’s biggest tick­et sell­ing open access arts festival!

We com­plete­ly take over Ade­laide, her sur­round­ing sub­urbs and even some region­al areas of South Aus­tralia for 31 mag­i­cal days and nights each year. The city prac­ti­cal­ly puls­es with creativity.

In 2019 we’ll hap­pen from 15 Feb­ru­ary – 17 March, and if you ask any­one who’s ever been lucky enough to expe­ri­ence the Fringe, they’ll tell you them­selves that it’s the best time of year to be in Adelaide.

Our atmos­phere is inde­scrib­able, but here are some words that almost do the job; myth­i­cal, mag­i­cal, fantab­u­lous, fan­tas­magor­i­cal, super­cal­ifrag­ilis­tic­ex­pi­ali­do­cious. You get the idea – we’re one in a million.

Venues big and small, pop-up and per­ma­nent house thou­sands of artists from all over Ade­laide, Aus­tralia and the world. Around most of Adelaide’s cor­ners, whether in an alley­way, a tent, a pub, a laun­dro­mat or an aban­doned hos­pi­tal for the crim­i­nal­ly insane, you’ll be bound to find Fringe good­ness in some shape or form.

We’re not-for-prof­it and an open access fes­ti­val — we don’t have a cura­tor hand­pick­ing shows. Any­one who wants to be a part of the Ade­laide Fringe, can*! We pro­vide a way for artists across all dis­ci­plines to share their work with the world.

With free events, ground break­ing work, new tal­ent, inno­v­a­tive think­ing and orig­i­nal voic­es, we’re for every­one. To put it sim­ply, we’re here to unleash the fun!
