Adelaide Fringe is the biggest arts festival in the Southern Hemisphere! For 31 magical summer days and nights, Fringe transforms Adelaide and greater South Australia. Our festival stretches from Whyalla all the way across the state to Naracoorte, with eclectic and vibrant events that include cabaret, theatre, comedy, circus, music, visual arts, workshops and so much more. Adelaide Fringe was born in 1960 and has grown year on year. In 2021, within a COVID world, we were able to sell an astonishing 632,667 tickets. Our audiences range from 1 to 100+ years old, and come from all walks of life. This variety also pertains to our diverse array of artists and venues, which are at the heart of everything we do. We truly are ‘The People’s Festival’. We are a not-for-profit, open access festival. This means that anyone can register an event in Adelaide Fringe! Whether you’re putting on a modestly-budgeted, dugong-themed cabaret gig in your Mum’s garage or you’re selling out spiegeltents with your high flying circus act—Fringe welcomes you with open arms!
