Fringe will look a little different in 2021, but it will still be a fun and exciting festival that is COVID safe! We will 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.
Stay home if you are unwell
Please stay at home if you are unwell or if you are showing COVID symptoms.
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.

VISIT SA HEALTH
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.
At present, the restirictions on venues, as dictated by SA Health, is that venue capacity is restricted to 50% of the overall capacity. Adelaide Fringe is not selling any events above this capacity.
SA Health does not dicitate 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 ensure you listen to venue staff and follow their direction around the venue seating layout to ensure the venue is operating in the safe way that they have outlined to SA Health.
Many venues are already operating with events in their venues and 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 a venues participation in Adelaide Fringe.

QR Codes & e-Ticketing
We recommend you use e-ticketing to reduce handling of materials. Display your QR code on your phone or device straight to staff at the venue door. This means you DO NOT need to collect your ticket from a box office or print your order confirmation at home.
Please be aware of your surroundings and adhere to physical distancing measures. If an event space is crowded, please stay away.

If you become unwell during an event, locate event or venue staff or first aid. In the case of an emergency situation, call emergency services.
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.
