So you want to be a part of Adelaide Fringe? There are so many ways you can participate!

A bit about us!

Open access

Adelaide Fringe is a not-for-profit, non-curated, open access festival! This means that artists, presenters and venues register to participate in Adelaide Fringe. We don’t curate our program; if you're a beginner with a budding idea, you're absolutely welcome to register! For more info, head to our artists or venues pages, or chuck an email through to our friendly team artists@adelaidefringe.com.au or venues@adelaidefringe.com.au!

Artists and Venues – How does it work?
  • All Fringe venues are independently managed. Adelaide Fringe doesn’t run any venues, but we can assist you to set up and run your own.
  • We help artists and venues find each other. You have the opportunity to opt into the online Venue Finder in AVR: the number one tool for artists to search for venues. All final bookings are made in an agreement between the artist and venue.
  • If you're a venue, you can boost your chances of securing a Fringe event by having a clear listing in the Venue Finder, being proactive and getting the word out. You can even looking at registering your own events.
  • Venues become an official Fringe venue once connected with a registered Fringe event.
