About the Adelaide Fringe
Adelaide Fringe began in 1960 as an alternative to the Adelaide Festival, which offered limited opportunity for local and smaller-scale artists. As an open access event, the Fringe allowed anyone with ideas and enthusiasm to register and be a part of the program, showcasing their arts to a welcoming public. Adelaide Fringe and Adelaide Festival ran side by side, every second year, for over three decades. 2007 sees the first time in the Adelaide Fringe's history where it stands alone as an annual arts event of its own accord. Performers from across the nation and around the globe will make their pilgrimage to Adelaide to present performances and events alongside a vast selection of home grown talent.
