More Fantastic Fringe Festival Days For 2022


Newcastle Fringe Festival is gearing up for 2022, with applications for interested artists now open (closing 15 October). The team behind the festival feels confident that the festival will proceed in March, with vaccination levels likely to be high enough for life to return to some semblance of normal (at least in NSW!). So, in addition to the artist callout, the festival has made further changes to the way it operates.


Newcastle Fringe 2021 was the most successful local fringe festival to date, with over 3,100 tickets sold despite torrential rain. There were over 100 performances across 11 venues, with nearly 25% of audiences coming from outside the Newcastle and Lake Macquarie local government areas, which means that Fringe is also a great boon for local tourism.
