Adelaide Fringe


Bursting at the seams with more than 1,300 shows, next year’s Adelaide Fringe is going to
be a kaleidoscope of the talented, the wonderful, and the outright whimsical, set to transform
Adelaide into a utopia of discovery and culture across February and March.
The multi-genre festival amalgamates comedy, theatre, circus, cabaret, visual art, music,
interactive and more in a melting pot of artistic expression.

The 2024 program boasts 23% percentage of international shows, a 5% increase on the
2023 season, signalling the global reputation and pull of Adelaide Fringe. There are 703
South Australian shows making up more than half the program and illustrating once again,
the strength of South Australian talent in the Adelaide Fringe.
