How do you find a venue? Good question. There are three ways to find your home-away-from-home this Fringe. Check out this step-by-step guide, or chat with our Participant Services Team on 03 9660 9660.
Apply to be part of the program at one of our Fringe-run venues in North Melbourne. Think of the Fringe Hub as a bit like Fringe base camp, with 10 different rooms of varying sizes to suit events of every style, shape and flavour. How do you know if your event is suitable? Hub events tend to share the following characteristics:
Applications for the Fringe Hub have closed.
There are heaps of fantastic venues across Melbourne that put together killer programs of events just for Melbourne Fringe. Sometimes they operate year-round, sometimes they just pop up for the Festival. Sometimes they’re artform specific (programming cabaret or circus or comedy) and other times they’re a mixed bag of Fringe-y goodness.
For some of these venues, programming is by application only – check out each of their Expression of Interest forms and due dates and apply directly to them here.
There are loads of other venues that are happy to talk to you directly without having to go through an Expression of Interest process. You can use our handy Venue Finder in our registration system Eventotron to search for a venue that suits your work – give them a hoy and make a booking directly.
Fringe happens wherever people make it happen. So, if you’ve found the perfect home for your Fringe event – a backyard? A shop window? A nest? – then bring it on. Details need to be confirmed by the registration closing date on 28 May.
We recommend you get your venue agreement in writing – particularly if you’re working in a nest; pigeons be flaky – so we thought we’d give you a hand and prepare a cheeky little template for you.
