COVID Safe Fringe

Fringe is preparing for a month long festival in 2021, running from 19 February - 21 March. We will run for 30 days and nights and will operate within government guidelines that may be in place around travel restrictions and/or crowd limits. 

While Fringe is going to look a little different in 2021, we’re looking forward to working with artists and venues to deliver an exciting, fun and COVID safe festival.

Being COVID safe is a shared responsibility. We want you to enjoy Adelaide Fringe and stay safe. Please follow COVID safe practices when attending Fringe events and help stop the spread.

Stay home if you are unwell

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



Maintain physical distancing

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.



Download the COVIDSafe app 

The COVIDSafe app speeds up contacting people exposed to coronavirus (COVID-19), helping to slow the spread.

Right to Refuse 

Venue management have a right to evict or refuse entry to ticket holders who are displaying COVID-19 symptoms. 


In the case of any government enforced shut down/restrictions, Adelaide Fringe will be guided by Live Performance Australia and Government/State organisations.
