A Fringe festival is a festival of performing arts. The basic rules are that it is open access, which means anyone can participate. Also that there is no censorship, which means artists are free to perform whatever they wish.
Bush Fringes policy is to bring performance art to regional cities.Bush Fringes wishes to attract local artists to perform and for audiences to enjoy a different, more artistic, form of entertainment.
A Fringe festival presents a different type of entertainment due to the fact that artists are allowed to do whatever they wish. Thus it becomes art for art’s sake.
For existing artists these Fringe festivals are another opportunity to perform. For local artists and emerging artists these festivals present a stepping stone to other venues.
4 days, from Thursday to Sunday.
WHAT SIZE IS THE FRINGE?
Bush Fringes are small festivals with our first priority to the artists. The smaller the festival the bigger the audience numbers and the more financial returns go straight to the artists. Similar small festivals boast an average of 42 audience members to each show. Therefore each festival is limited to 5 to 6 venues.
Bush Fringes provides a safe and inclusive space for our performers and patrons. We do not tolerate harassment, bullying, racism, homophobia, sexism or any kind of disrespect towards our artists, crew, venue staff or other patrons.
