Tour Ready

Melbourne Fringe’s Tour Ready Program

Aimed at equipping our participants with the skills to create a sustainable practice, the Tour Ready program assists Melbourne Fringe artists to extend the life of their show beyond the Festival.

The Tour Ready program includes this Melbourne Fringe Producer Pack #3, Tour Ready networking opportunities and a list of delegates who are coming to town in September with an interest in meeting Fringe artists and seeing works for potential opportunities presentation and/or future development.

By participating in Melbourne Fringe’s Tour Ready program you’ll get the chance to meet people and build relationships with a range of producers and promoters from Melbourne, across Australia and around the world. You’ll have access to a directory of specially selected presenters who are interested in seeing and programming works from within the Melbourne Fringe Festival.

In the lead-up to the Festival, Melbourne Fringe offers a Tour Ready Info Session designed to prepare participants with the skills and practical strategies required to approach potential touring partners, develop work for touring purposes, build professional skills and tour a successful Fringe show.

During the Festival, Tour Ready participants have access to a series of informal, fun networking events when Melbourne Fringe hosts a range of interstate and local programmers and presenters. In 2017, these events will be held at the Lithuanian Club at the Fringe Hub – 44 Errol Street, North Melbourne on:
