Perth embraced FRINGE WORLD’s huge program of more than 700 shows across more than 130 venues with more than 400,000 ticketed attendance and generated box office sales of more than $11.5 million.

These enormous figures are an increase of over 10% from last year’s Fringe and a ten-fold increase from the first FRINGE WORLD Festival eight years ago, cementing Perth as the third largest Fringe in the world!

The Festival Awards event rounded out what has been an incredible program of shows and events for 2019, recognising the amazing talent in each genre category that has entertained Perth for the last four weeks. 

Fringe proudly presents the most generous Awards of any Fringe festival in the world with winners receiving cash, development support and direct touring opportunities. Click here to see the 2019 Award Winners.
