How can I take part in the 2015 Edinburgh Festival Fringe?
The Fringe is an open-access festival. That means that the programme includes anyone with a show to present and a venue willing to host them. The Edinburgh Festival Fringe Society does not produce any shows, invite anyone to perform, run any venues or pay any fees to artists, and no single individual or committee determines who can or cannot perform at the Fringe. Participation relies solely on the initiative of the thousands of performers who choose to put on a show at the festival every year.
What makes it special?
- Totally open-access, the Fringe is proud to include in their programme anyone with a story to tell and a venue willing to host them.
- See theatre, comedy, dance, circus, cabaret, children's shows, physical theatre, musicals, opera, music, spoken word, exhibitions and events.
- It's a magnet for creative producers, the industry and the media making it the biggest and most dynamic international arts market in the world.
