Volunteer applications for Sydney Fringe 2023 are now closed. Check back in 2024.



A large part of the success of the festival lies with our volunteers who give their time so generously. This is an excellent opportunity for anyone who would like to become involved in Sydney’s creative arts and cultural sector or gain experience in the entertainment sector and meet some new friends! Importantly, it also gives you the chance to see a bumper lineup of Sydney’s artists and events for free.

This September we had an army of dedicated volunteers all over the city helping to share Sydney’s stories presenting new work from all genres.

We made new friends, explored Sydney and saw incredible shows.
