  • Adelaide Fringe will provide a Letter of Support, required as part of the visa application process.
  • Adelaide Fringe is a registered ACNC charity, which means the visa application fee will be waived – saving you $310!

Additional Performance Opportunities

We will pass your information on to councils, activations and events looking for street performers to Fringe-ify their events and activations. The online listing of registered street performers will also be used by Adelaide Fringe Producers when they require artists for Fringe-managed events.
