This year we are celebrating a decade of Sydney Fringe. That’s ten years of local stories, new artists, activations, adventures and experiences. We have grown from a tiny indi arts festival in the Inner West of Sydney to the largest Independent arts festival in NSW annually hosting over 400 events across 21 postcodes during our 30 day festival. We truly are Sydney’s fringe festival. This year we are gearing up for a massive year, pushing the boundaries of what we can achieve further than ever before because we love our city and we love our artists.
Each September culture creators from all over the city join forces with us to demonstrate the type of city they want to live in all year round. As an open access festival our program is curated by our artists for our audiences. Providing an annual snapshot of how Sydney feels, where we are and where we are heading
Our Sydney is vibrant, experimental, expressive, playful, fun, creative, connected and diverse. We look forward to a day when our creative communities are adequately resourced, effectively supported and valued for the contribution they make to our great global city. Until then we will continue to celebrate together each September as Sydney Fringe works with our community to transform the landscape of our city into unique experiences not found at any other time of the year. From activating unused buildings, unlocking hidden gems and presenting major outdoor activations, the Sydney Fringe Festival connects you to the city in new ways.
This is your city your way.
