Honey Pot is Adelaide Fringe’s International Arts Marketplace. Think of it as a match-making service between passionate industry leaders and motivated artists who are looking to take their events to the next level. 

Marketplace delegates in 2021 will participate in-person and virtually, ensuring our continued international engagement with new and returning industry from around the world. With close to 200 delegates from 20 countries already confirmed, and registrations remaining open throughout the festival, this is sure to be another great year to join Honey Pot!

We are excited to include delegates from the UK, South Korea and India as well as a selection of industry from North and South America - all representing festivals, venues and companies. 

The marketplace will also host major hubs from Edinburgh Fringe, renowned theatre venues and music festivals and a number of programmers and presenters from around Australia will be returning, all looking for the next big thing!
