Being Australia’s Biggest Arts Festival and the world’s second-largest annual arts festival comes naturally to The Adelaide Fringe.
Between mid-February and mid-March each year, it features more than 7,000 artists from around Australia and the world. Over 1,300 events are staged in hundreds of venues, which include work in a huge variety of performing and visual art forms. The city becomes electric. The streets are lit by the energy of people from all walks of life.
The Adelaide Fringe came to life in 1960 and has become the back bone for the cities posture in the arts. Big and small, pop-up and permanent venues all come to life with imagination-sparking performances. The Fringe features many free events alongside ticketed events for the duration of the festival.
