Perks of Being a Fringe Venue?

Well firstly, venue registration is completely FREE!

And more importantly, anyone and everyone can be involved! It doesn’t matter how big or small your venue is, whether you’ve got four walls made from bricks and mortar or you’re a temporary space (alleyway, pub, concert hall, library, laundromat or double-decker bus), YOU can create Fringe magic in whatever shape or form your venue takes on!

As an open access festival, we don’t book artists or program shows for you. This means you can go nuts in curating a program that’s unique and favourable to your venue and audience. Use your strengths and find your niche! Opening your doors to Adelaide Fringe can open a world of possibilities for you:

  • increasing venue exposure and building new audiences,
  • creating a potential increase in revenue,
  • and enabling you to provide a supportive platform for artists.
