Curtains Close on the 2024 FRINGE WORLD Stage! Read on for all the thank you's and good-byes...
The Festival is DONEZO!

As we bid adieu to another extraordinary Fringe, we raise a long, tall, icy glass of hydralite to all you legends out there - thank you for bringing your A-game this year and helping us make magic happen!

Cheers to the team, to all the Admin Angels, Bar Bandits, Box Office Bizarros, Executive Extraordinaires, Finance Falcons, Front of House Fantásticos, IT Illusionists, Marketing Magicians, Operations Oracles, Partnership Pilots, Photography Pythons, Production Powerhouses, Project Panthers, Programming Peacocks, Technical Wizards, Video Vixens, and Volunteer Venturers for absolutely smashing it out of the pleasure playground this year!

A heartfelt round of applause goes out to our incredible Supporters, the backbone of this Festival. This event couldn't happen without the support of Lotterywest, The Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries, The City of Perth, Kleenheat, K&L Gates, Gage Roads Brew Co, MadFish Wines, Idle Hands Drinks Co, JCDecaux, Nova 93.7, RTRFM, Perth Now, Channel 7, and Urban List. We are blessed to have them by our side; their belief in the importance of the arts makes our golden State shine brighter than the sun each and every year.

We ask you to put your hands together, rise to your feet, and stomp and holler like never before for FRINGE WORLD'S BIGGEST STANDING OVATION to our wonderful Artists! Their blood, sweat, and tears poured across our stages and together we laughed, cried, and bewildered our way through another scorching summer season. Our Artists breathe life, hope, and wonderment into an incredibly desperate world, and we are beyond humbled by their absolute amazingness.

Last but certainly not least, get ready to throw flowers, choccies, and even your undies onto the metaphorical stage for this last group of absolute hellraisers - the FRINGE WORLD Audience. You know who you are, and we cannot thank you enough for coming out in droves to support the Artists, the WA Arts Community, and our amazing not-for-profit organization ARTRAGE.

As we start the sweaty and sad job of bump-out (aka pack down), we promise to bring it even harder and larger and glitzier and glammer in 2025!

Cheers to a month filled with confetti, cheer and charm - see ya next year!
