we are the largest independent arts festival in nsw

The Sydney Fringe Festival celebrated its seventh year in 2016 and is now the largest independent arts festival in NSW. In 2016, the Sydney Fringe Festival had a record-breaking year with partnerships, attendance, media coverage, engagement and participation reaching their highest levels to date (2016 statistics will be published by 30 October 2016).

Each year the Sydney Fringe Festival brings alive the streets of Sydney, connecting artists, audiences, businesses and the community for a month long celebration. The capacity of local arts to enrich a city, inspire its people and offer new opportunities cannot be underestimated. In addition to the presentation of works in existing spaces, the Fringe activates public spaces, invigorating areas of Sydney that are not traditionally used for creative enterprise.

There was a noticeable lift in trade. It was lovely to have Tina Harrod perform live in our Hotel.

Delighted to partner with the Sydney Fringe that allowed for true expression of independent artists and bringing about community. It was the perfect partnership to help bring the pages of this Australian independent print magazine to life in such a unique and targeted way.
