Gluttony is a vibrant outdoor hub - a festival within a festival at the Adelaide Fringe Festival. Full of beautiful tent venues, bars, awesome food vendors, and a relaxed space for sitting and having a glass of wine before a show, Gluttony has gone from strength to strength, growing each year whilst still maintaining an intimate atmosphere for punters and artists alike. We have a prime position on the corner of East Terrace and Rundle Street, across from the Garden and adjoining the Fringe Club. As Gluttony’s directors, we maintain a strong focus on working with our artists to get the best results we can for them. We are interested in long-term, collaborative and healthy relationships with producers and artists so that we can continue to grow great results together for years to come. Gluttony’s popularity is growing annually, and we always invest back into the hub.
