Artist Registrations are open now

This form will give you the he opportunity to provide us with as much information as you can about the show, your company and what you would like to achieve this Fringe. Please include any information you feel will best explain your show to us and give us an idea of how we can best program your show.

We accept applications at any time before the Fringe deadline, however we encourage you to apply as soon as possible. Offers may be made at any part of this process and we welcome you to contact us to discuss this.

Our final programme will depend on the overall artistic and technical balance of the shows in each performance space and therefore it won't be finalised it until October.

We will keep you updated and the progress of your application and please let us know if your intention to perform in Fringe is dependent on funding and grant rounds. We are able to provide letter s of support for those shows we intend to program only.

All productions will be registered with the Adelaide Fringe by Holden Street Theatres, allowing you to be listed in their brochure, sell tickets via their Box Office and take advantage of their participant’s services.
