Theatre, Comedy, Burlesque, Music, Visual Arts And Much, Much More. Sydney Fringe Festival Is Back.

Events, Festivals, Film & Art, Sydney / 9 February 2022

And, we don’t have to wait until September.

As our city emerges from the ravages of the pandemic Sydney needs it’s Fringe Festival more than ever before. With over 150 performances and featuring over 100 artists scheduled from February 15th, this year you don’t have to wait until September to experience Fringe.

Culture creators from all over the city will join forces to demonstrate the type of city they want to live in all year round. As an open access festival the program is curated by our artists for our audiences.

In 2019 Sydney Fringe celebrated it’s first decade. As expected it was the largest festival ever and saw over 1600 performances by over 2200 artists hit the streets of Greater Sydney across 25 postcode areas. This year the festival promises to push the boundaries of what can be achieved because, well, Sydney is just so damn worth it.

“We love our artists and we want as many of our audiences to see as much as they possibly can during our festival.” – Sydney Fringe Creators

This Feb 15th, Sydney Fringe will kick off its first IRL festival since 2019, taking over the nooks and crannies of our sprawling city, pop-up venues and cultural hotspots will play host to many different events, classes and shows such as award winning plays, comedy, burlesque, music, visual arts, and much more.

The Sydney Fringe provides a platform for Sydney stories by Sydney voices in their originating landscape. Where else can you see literally hundreds of world premieres made right in your back yard. And if you are stopping by, a visitor to our beautiful city then our annual festival is the perfect place to gain an understanding of how Sydney is feeling, what we are doing and where we are going.

The Sydney we love is vibrant, experimental, expressive, playful, fun, creative, connected and diverse. 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.
