During the Festival you can head to Federation Square (Cnr Swanston and Flinders Streets) and buy your tickets from our Festival Concierges. They can also offer recommendations if you’re having trouble choosing what to see, give you directions to your venue and might help with basic life admin tasks (if you ask nicely).

Open during the Festival (14 September – 1 October): Tuesday – Sunday, 11am – 7pm.

At the Door

If you’re a last-minute-Larry, then you MAY be able to buy any unsold tickets at the door from Festival venues – this includes the Fringe Hub: Arts House and Fringe Hub: Lithuanian Club Box Offices. Door sales are subject to availability and FYI many venues are cash only.

Fringe Dweller

Exclusively for our members. Fringe Dwellers get discounted tickets to a range of events. If you haven’t joined yet (uh, why not?), head here to get all the details and join up.


Say you saw it first. Preview prices are available for some events – the artists get to road-test their work and you get a cheaper ticket.


Bring friends, lovers, pets – and save! The number in brackets next to ‘Group’ indicates how big your group needs to be in order to qualify for the group discount. (Don’t bring pets.)

Those aged 16 years and under are entitled to a child ticket, where available. Children under two years old may be admitted into an event at no cost and without a ticket. In these cases, it’s free on the knee – ie, children won’t be allocated a seat and must be seated on your lap. Some events do require children under the age of two to be admitted with a ticket – particularly if the performance is specifically for this age group. If this is the case, it will say so on the event’s individual listing. Children must be accompanied by an adult at all times. If no Child price applies, humans aged 16 years and under are entitled to concession prices.
