Melbourne Fringe Registrations Now Open

headerFringe With Benefits

What’s that? You want to be part of our amazing festival? Well now is the time to Step Into the Light: registrations have just opened for 2016 and we’re psyched to see what you have in store for us.

We have big plans for this year’s Festival including a brand new category for all of you storytellers, poets and wordsmiths, the expansion of our Family Program at the Fringe Hub, and some other things we’re gonna keep under wraps for just a while longer…

Registrations Now Open

Last year 6,000 artists presented 400 events in 196 venues over 19 days. In other words, we took over Melbourne with celebration, adventure, risk, fun, experimentation and bravery and we’re ready to do it all over again.

Whether you’re an established or emerging artist, queer, straight, trans, young, old, local, interstate, speak English, don’t speak a word of it, it’s time to Step Into the Light and become a part of this year’s Festival.

For all you poets, storytellers, thinkers, philosophers and masters of the spoken word, we’ve also created a brand new category called Words and Ideas.

We’ve also introduced a new registration structure for artists wanting to present 2-4 sessions.

We’re looking for big, bold, beautiful, ugly, strange, spectacular, experimental, innovative, scary, exhilarating, unique, different, diverse. We’re looking for you.
