From the 1st – 30th September, the sixth annual Sydney Fringe Festival rears its head again for a month of entertainment. The largest independent arts series of gigs in the city, it’s strategically scattered around five villages and hosts a walloping 300 productions within 50 venues.
This year, the Festival will also spill onto the streets of NSW so expect to see live performances in random places. It’s designed to keep you on your creative toes nightly as secret city venues will be adoring you with culture, arts and crafts. From pop up spaces, street activations and shop fronts – they’ll be in your face like white on rice and you will applaud and cheer them on until you burst with adrenaline.
If you’re truly looking to be in the thick of the action, there are volunteer and internship opportunities from hands-on-help to social media assistance. So if tweeting, posting, Instagramming and Snapchatting is up your alley, then check the current opportunities available in the ‘about us’ website section.
Ticketing details are not currently available to purchase online, yet you can contact the ‘ticketing’ web section to enquire. Or follow the @sydneyfringe Twitter account for real time updates so you can grab seats (or standing) tickets. Also remember to use #sydneyfringe leading up to the Festival and during the September shenanigans while you tag comments, post videos, meddle with Vines and upload pictures so you have the chance of being retweeted and receive your social 5 seconds of fame.
For all budding artists, the Fringe Festival greatly supports your creativity so contact the organizers to discuss matching your talents to the right venue, whether you’re established or emerging. There’s also an Awards system judged by an industry panel and an 8-Part Workshop Education Series if you’re a serious newbie to the arts scene.
