COVID Safe Fringe

For most up-to-date information and notifications regarding Ticket Holders and COVID impacts click here 

Fringe looks a little different this year, but is still a fun and exciting festival that is COVID safe! We run for 31 days and nights and will operate within government guidelines that may be in place around travel restrictions and/or crowd limits at the time.

We need Fringe-goers to be open-minded and willing to experience Fringe within restrictions. Please follow COVID safe practices when attending Fringe events and help stop the spread.


Wear a mask

It is a mandatory government requirement that masks must be worn at all times in  Indoor public spaces including cinemas, theatres, restaurants and bars. Please come prepared and follow the direction of venue staff. 


Keep 1.5m from our nearest Fringe-goer

Avoid close contact and crowded places whenever you can, and aim to keep approximately 1.5 metres distance from those around you in the community.

Wash your hands 

Practice good hand hygiene. Wash your hands often with soap and running water for at least 20 seconds. Dry them with paper towel or a hand dryer. Alternatively, use alcohol based hand sanitisers.




Please respect venue COVID guidelines


All venues are required to have approved COVID safe plans (or COVID Management plans if their capacities are higher) before they can open their doors. This is also a requirement of Adelaide Fringe venue registration.

SA Health does not dictate any requirements about the seating set up of a venue, some venues may choose to seat you checkerboard style, others will be allocated seating and many will be GA. Please listen to venue staff and follow their direction around the seating layout to ensure the venue is operating in accordance with their COVID Safe Plans.

Adelaide Fringe is in constant communication with all registered Adelaide Fringe venues and we are all working together to ensure we are following all Government and SA Health requirements to ensure patron safety.


Stay home if you are unwell

Please stay at home if you are unwell or if you are showing COVID symptoms.
