For 2.5 weeks in September, Melbourne Fringe transforms Melbourne into a platform for every kind of artform imaginable, supporting over 3,000 artists to present 450+ works in 170+ venues to more than 360,000 people.

Our open access Festival champions cultural democracy – art for anyone. We celebrate freedom of artistic expression, we take voices from the margins and amplify them across the city. Fringe embraces risk through our uncurated festival which supports anyone to participate.

We work year round as educators, promoters, and creators. We are supporters, we are challengers, we rock the boat and we question the status quo.


Our participants and our audiences are at the heart of what we do. They are the risk-takers and the art-makers. They are creative, they are bold, they are diverse. They are the artists at the start of their careers, they are the artists launching into the next echelon, they are the big names trying out brand new ideas, and sometimes, they are just everyday people who have something big to say.

We have evolved across our 36 years, beginning in 1982 as the Fringe Art Network. While we stay committed to our roots – a collaborative encouraging, representing and uniting artists of all disciplines – we have matured to become one of our state’s most significant arts organisations that supports the generation of new work, discovering artists and new ideas.
