Guide for first-time Fringers

Plan ahead and buy early

Don’t leave all your ticket purchases until the last minute. Over 60 sessions have already sold out during opening weekend! Buy early to avoid disappointment. Browse the program here.

Download the FRINGE WORLD App

Keep track of shows you’re interested in and your tickets in one place. You can also access show recommendations and reviews! See more about the app here.

Check out Fringefeed

Fringefeed is the home of reviews, recommendations, and Fringey news. Keep an eye out for things like ‘Fringe shows based on your Hogwarts House’ and artist interviews.

Sample a few things at FRINGE Sunday Funday

FRINGE Sunday Funday is one giant, free, family-friendly community event taking over William Street and made possible thanks to FRINGE WORLD’s hero supporter, Lotterywest. 

Come along on Sunday 16 January. Find out more here.

Try new things

Be sure to leave some spots free in your Fringe month to see a show you haven’t heard of – sometimes, that’s how you find your new favourites!
