General

Yes! Adelaide Fringe 2022 will be going ahead in line with regulations and restrictions put in place by SA Health.

We are working very closely with artists, venues, presenters and SA Health to ensure another safe Fringe, just like Fringe 2021!

For more information check out our COVID-safe Fringe page.

The next festival will be 18 February - 20 March 2022! Our full program will be on sale 2 December 2021.

 

 

Adelaide Fringe takes place in more than 300 venues across Adelaide’s CBD and suburbs, and stretches across regional SA from up in Whyalla all the way over to Naracoorte in the East. As Adelaide Fringe is an open access festival, we do not run or operate these venues. Interested in registering a venue for Adelaide Fringe? Venue registrations will be open from Tuesday 27 July.

Our Fringe Guides will be available in January 2022.

You can collect one from our Box Office in Rundle Mall from Monday, January 12 2022 onwards. There will also be a digital copy available to download.

 

Yes, we can! You will need to pay postage. Check back in January 2022 for more info.

 

With COVID capacity restrictions in place, all venues will be operating at smaller capacities than in previous years. In order to ensure public and artist safety, and to ensure social distancing is possible inside venues, it is predicted that many venues will hit their total capacity with ticket holders attending shows and walk-ins without tickets may not be able to enter.

We strongly encourage you to buy a ticket to the show of your choice at the venue you wish to attend, and spend the evening at the venue enjoying the show (or shows!) food, wine and hospitality on offer at the venue.

The best way to plan your night is to use our Daily Diary, you can filter by the date you want to go out, filter by the venue of your choice and browse all events by time. The Daily Diary will be available when the 2022 Program launches Thursday 2 December 2021.

Gluttony will be operating at strictly managed capacities during this Fringe season, to accommodate COVID-19 physical distancing requirements. As such, if patron numbers approach our capacity, Gluttony will be prioritising entry to their Rymill Park/Murlawirrapurka site for patrons who have purchased tickets to Gluttony shows for that day/night, over those who are not show ticketholders. We strongly encourage you to book show tickets for your visits to the Gluttony hub and in the process support their artists, without whom this wonderful festival could not exist!

Entry to The Garden is free, but as in prior years, priority access is given to Ticket Holders.

If you are not attending a ticketed performance, you may be required to wait prior to entering The Garden at busy times.

The Garden encourages you to visit mid-week to avoid queues.

Yes! We adhere to Live Performance Australia Guidelines for our refunds and exchanges policy and have made changes to ensure audiences, artists and venues are considered in the case of a COVID related shutdown. 

Please have read of our Terms and Conditions here to understand your rights in various cases of event cancellation during Fringe.

Unfortunately we are not able to sponsor your event, organisation or fundraiser. Adelaide Fringe is a not-for-profit that operates as an umbrella organisation for artists.

As an open-access festival, independent artists pay a fee to be registered in Adelaide Fringe, and use their own funds to stage their productions and/or run their venues. Although Adelaide Fringe retains a small servicing and transaction fee, the majority of the ticket sales income goes directly back to the artists.

Adelaide Fringe is an open access festival. Every year, hundreds of venues all over the state register to be a part of Fringe; all of these venues are independently run. If you've lost something at a Fringe venue, you will need to contact that venue directly. Venue contact information can be found on our website by using the venue search option.

Adelaide Fringe is an open access arts festival; we don’t run our own venues and, therefore, don’t coordinate any stalls for catering or goods for sale.

Venues make their own arrangements for stalls and catering. If you're interested in having a stall at a Fringe venue, you will need to contact that venue directly.

The free movie screening invites that come with our Fringe Memberships are private screenings we run throughout the year. They are held in the non-peak festival time (April – Sep).

How it works is we send out an invite to our Members in the e-newsletter and Members opt in for two tickets at zero cost. Tickets are limited so it is a first come first serve. We hold 4 of these screenings a year for Fringe Fanatics and 2 for Fringe Members and they always sell out.

Your membership is valid for one year from the date of purchase. Renew your membership here.

Fringe Fanatics have access to uncapped 2for1 tix to participating Fringe 2022 events. Fringe Members have access to five 2for1 tix to participating Fringe 2022 events.

Adelaide Fringe has made the decision to support Fringe venues and the hospitality industry in 2021 and will not be operating the Fringe Club which would compete with existing venues during this already difficult time.

Through our Membership program we are working with participating venues to offer Members offers and deals to encourage a vibrant nightlife during Fringe and we would urge our Members to support local and support the hospitality industry.

We hope you can understand this decision and can help support SA venues far and wide. 

We are able to look you up at the Box Office when you purchase your tickets. Or you can access a membership card which you can download and print a version. To do this, head to MyFringe page in your MyFringe account, click 'My Details' and then click 'Where's my membership card'.

You sure can!

Your loved ones will be stoked with a year full of magical Fringe-ness, and hey, they might even shout you a discounted ticket or two to thank you for it.

Gift Memberships are available for purchase from 1 July 2022.

 

During the Fringe, you can buy up one lot of 2for1 tix per participating event (unless otherwise stipulated). So if you're going out for date night, you get two tickets for the price of one!

You can also bring one guest to any member events that you attend. But if your partner or other family members want to access all of the awesome member benefits, they'll need to purchase their own membership.

Just log in to your MyFringe account where you can update your billing and postal address details, add your DOB, change your password and also update your email account. Otherwise, give us a buzz on 08 8100 2000 and we'll help you out!
