For Artists

The Sydney Fringe Festival is your festival. Our festival program is curated by our artists for our audiences. Sydney Fringe is all about showcasing Sydney stories by Sydney voices in their originating landscape, and sharing work from our global Fringe partners with Sydney audiences.


What that means is entirely up to you – our artists. What do you want your Sydney to look like? Come play with us, and be part of creating your city, your way.
