The Adelaide Fringe is Australia’s largest Arts Festival and the second biggest Fringe Festival in the world!
We completely take over Adelaide and its’ surrounds for 31 magical days and nights each year, and if you ask anyone who’s ever been lucky enough to experience the Fringe, they’ll tell you that it’s the best time of year to be in Adelaide.
Our atmosphere is indescribable, but here are some words that almost do the job; mythical, magical, fantabulous, fantasmagorical, supercalifragilisticexpialidocious. You get the idea – we’re one in a million.
Venues big and small, pop-up and permanent, house thousands of artists from all over Adelaide, Australia and the world. Around most of Adelaide’s corners, whether in an alleyway, a tent, a pub; a laundromat, or an abandoned hospital, you’ll be bound to find Fringe goodness in some shape or form.
With free events, ground breaking work, new talent, innovative thinking and original voices, we’re here to unleash the fun.
