Adelaide Fringe Festival 2015

The Adelaide Fringe, Australia’s largest open-access arts festival is run over four weeks in Adelaide, South Australia. It is internationally renowned as one of the best!

Artists from around Australia and across the globe participate alongside home-grown talent, in art forms spanning cabaret, comedy, circus, dance, film, theatre, puppetry, music, visual art and design.

Adelaide Fringe literally takes over the entire city with 900 events staged in pop up venues in parks, warehouses, lane-ways and empty buildings as well as established venues such as theatres, hotels, art galleries, cafes and town halls.

One of the main differences that sets the Adelaide Fringe 2015 apart from other worldwide Fringe festivals, is the free special events. These accessible programs run throughout the festival, and add an exciting carnival-like air that permeates the city.   

Here are  a few Fringe favourites!

  1. The Fringe this year was excellent, and although I always prefer local, the UK influence this year was talented and exceptional. A great time in Adelaide, especially with WOMAD too happening. 10/10.
