The Adelaide Fringe Festival kicks off in February and runs through until March. It’s a month of festivities as renowned artists from around the world gather in Adelaide to perform, entertain, dazzle and entrance.
The city of Adelaide is set to transform during this time with hundreds of pop-up venues appearing around the city at parks, warehouses, empty buildings and laneways. That’s not all, the established places of the arts are going to come alive as the city’s theatres, art galleries, cafes and town halls take part in the festivities.
