As A Venue

Register a Venue

Fringe venues are all over Melbourne, from CBD laneways, to the suburbs and beyond. Any space can be a Fringe venue – fully kitted out theatres, galleries, bars, warehouses, shopfronts, caravans, and even laundromats (yes, you heard us right). If you have space, you can be a Fringe venue!

Melbourne Fringe maintains an extensive database of brilliant venues of all shapes and sizes on our registration system Eventotron (no, not a typo) – this database is available to all Fringe artists and producers, who will use it to find the perfect home for their show, exhibition or event. It’s totally FREE to register your venue with us – we don’t charge our venues anything to take part.

For more information on joining Melbourne Fringe as a venue in 2018, download our Venue Information Pack here.

If you feel like you’re totally across it and you’re ready to enter your venue’s details into our registration system Eventotron, download our How To Register a Venue Guide here.
