Perth's fringe festival pulls in the crowds

They like to do things big in Western Australia. 

One of the state's most popular festivals, Fringe World, has developed into the third-largest fringe festival in the world with a program of over 700 events held across more than 150 venues over summer. 

Many venues feature food trucks, outdoor bars and free entertainment.



Fringe World runs for a month - from January 17 to February 16 -  and is an annual multi-arts festival that attracts close to a million people to free and ticketed events. 

Locals and tourists can enjoy a line-up of comedy, circus, free and family entertainment, theatre, visual arts, musicals, dance and cabaret presented by local, national and international artists.

Highlights from the program include the international music success, The Choir of Man, and the award-winning art-house circus, Casting Off

Returning favourites include Feugo Carnal, local heroes YUCK Circus, and the chilling hit S√ČANCE returns with another new experience, FLIGHT

The 2020 festival will also feature a new Fringe World Hub: Girls School, located in the historic 1930s Old Perth Girls School Building – offering a big program of shows, outdoor food vendors and a secret bar.
