Interested in joining our Volunteer Crew?


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 line up of Sydney’s artists and events for free.




This September we need an army of dedicated volunteers all over the city to share Sydney’s stories presenting new work from all genres. Get creative and curious with Sydney Fringe Festival.

Make new friends, explore Sydney like you’ve never done before, and see incredible shows.




“I would recommend for anyone who has just landed to get involved and see that Sydney is full of ideas. I would highly recommend volunteering, it is a vert interesting atmosphere, and you can start exploring the cities unique side. I think it’s one of the best experiences that you can have, museums are good… but if you want to feel the culture, if you want to understand what’s up with the arts here, I think this is the best experience”

– Uiliia Zaitseva 2022 Volunteer
