Adelaide Fringe 2018

February 16 - March 18

Adelaide Fringe completely takes over Adelaide, her surrounding suburbs and even some regional areas of South Australia for 31 magical days and nights each year. The city practically pulses with creativity.

In 2018, it will happen from 16 February – 18 March and if you ask anyone who’s ever been lucky enough to experience the Fringe, they’ll tell you themselves that it’s the best time of year to be in Adelaide.

The atmosphere is indescribable, but here are some words that almost do the job; mythical, magical, fantabulous, fantasmagorical, supercalifragilisticexpialidocious. You get the idea – it’s 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 for the criminally insane, you’ll be bound to find Fringe goodness in some shape or form.

The important thing about Adelaide Fringe is that it’s open access, which means that they don’t have a curator handpicking shows. Anyone who wants to be a part of the Adelaide Fringe, can*! They provide a way for artists across all disciplines to share their work with the world.

With free events, ground breaking work, new talent, innovative thinking and original voices, it’s for everyone. To put it simply, it’s your festival wonderland!

*So long as they’re not doing anything illegal.
