Register now for the 2013 Melbourne Fringe Festival.
The culmination of independent arts activity throughout the year, the Melbourne Fringe Festival allows artists and producers to take creative risks, develop their skills and present new work to a large and committed audience.
General registration is open Friday 3 May - Friday 24 May, 2013.
Before you register you’ll need to have a number of details in place including:
- A confirmed venue
- The dates and times of your show
- A blurb and image
- Ticket prices (if applicable)
Consult the 2013 Melbourne Fringe Producers Pack for further information on how to prepare.
2013 Registration Fees
$390 for ticketed shows
$260 for one-off or free shows
Your registration fee covers a range of administrative and marketing costs - as well as the valuable ongoing support and advice from the Melbourne Fringe team. Visit the Artist Development page for more information on our 2012 Forum Series, mentoring programs, Awards Program and other professional development opportunities available for participating artists and producers.
In order to register, you'll need to create an account and complete your registration details via the 2013 Melbourne Fringe Festival Registration site. You will be able to save your details and log in and out as you please until registrations close on 24 May.
Once your registration details are complete, you will need to visit the Melbourne Fringe office before 24 May (special arrangements can be made if you are not based in Melbourne) so that you can sign the Participants' Agreement and pay your registration fee. Please be aware that the final days of registration will be very busy in the office, so come in to see us as early as you can.
Need help finding a venue?
Melbourne Fringe has collated a list of potential venues as a starting point for artists. You can source a venue anywhere; it does not have to be from this list. Please note that the relationship with the venue is between the artist/producer and the venue, not Melbourne Fringe. We highly recommend that you get confirmation of your agreement from your venue in writing, you can use this venue hire agreement template as a guide.
Still have questions?
Contact Melbourne Fringe for advice on 9660 9600 or email@example.com.
Melbourne Fringe - Sydney Fringe Touring Opportunity
Melbourne Fringe and Sydney Fringe have joined forces to create a new opportunity for artists to take their work interstate and present it to a wider audience.
Running 6-29 September, the 2013 Sydney Fringe overlaps with the Melbourne Fringe Festival from 18 September. To encourage artists to tour shows to both Festivals – a season in Sydney followed by a season in Melbourne – Sydney Fringe is offering a full refund of their participation fees. Artists select a box during Sydney Fringe registration to signify their intent to register with Melbourne Fringe and become eligible for the refund.
This means that when you register with Melbourne Fringe, you could take part in two Fringe Festivals for the cost of one registration fee.
If you would like to access this superb touring opportunity, contact us and we’ll assist in delivering the relevant information. We’ll also do what we can to help interstate artists find venues in Melbourne that will allow them to fit performances at both Festivals into their timeframe.
