The Melbourne Fringe Festival, Victoria’s most vibrant independent arts showcase, invites artists from all disciplines to apply to be a part of Melbourne Fringe 2016.

Applications are open from Monday 4 April until Monday 23 May before Fringe takes over the city from 15 September – 2 October.

Local, national and international artists are all invited to apply via the registration portal on the Melbourne Fringe website, Artists and producers seeking further information and tips on preparing for registration should visit the “How To Take Part” page on the website.

In 2016, Melbourne Fringe is asking our city to step into the light. The Festival will illuminate different perspectives, searchlight new artists, spotlight artistic innovation, shed light on new ideas, and focus our city spaces so we see them anew.
