Melbourne Fringe Festival
Not long to go now….for Melbourne’s largest open access arts festival to begin.
On September 18, Melbourne’s much-loved Fringe Festival opens, with 326 events planned to take place in around 100 venues across Melbourne.
A cultural barometer for what is new and cutting-edge in Australian arts practice, the Melbourne Fringe Festival brings together Melbourne’s independent arts community for 18 days of performance, dance, cabaret and visual arts.

Highlights: The independent, open-access program, where thousands of artists sign up to produce and present new work in theatres, galleries, laneways, public gardens, living rooms, trams, backyards and public spaces across Victoria. Fringe Furniture, a long running Fringe Festival stalwart, Fringe Furniture this year invites furniture designers to respond to the theme Make It True. Opens 18 September at the Abbotsford Convent.

The Fringe Hub in North Melbourne, which opens on Friday 20 September. Centred around three venues, the North Melbourne Town Hall, Lithuanian House and Errols Café, Fringe Hub offers a true taste of the Melbourne Fringe Festival. Every night in the Fringe Club there’s a party, with 12 theme nights running the gamut of entertainment genres – including punk, circus, comedy, rock, ‘90s sing-alongs – even football gets a guernsey.

Digital Gardens, where audiences can see a show in the Festival and then play a game based on or inspired by the performance in two pop-up playgrounds to be set up at in the City and Prahran during the Festival. City Square, 19 September – 21 September, Thurs and Fri 2pm – 11pm, Sat 2pm – midnight. Prahran Town Hall – 28 – 29 September and 5 – 6 October, Sat and Sun 11am – 4pm.
