Highlighting the city’s vibrant culture, Fringe will bring life to Sydney suburbs with a diverse program spanning theatre, music, comedy, visual art, film, musical theatre, dance, circus, literature and poetry. The 2019 program will feature more than eight festival hubs across the city this September, including its City Tatts Hub, Touring Hub, Western Sydney Fringe, Circus Hub, Dance Hub, Emerging Artist Hub and a new Paddington Hub.

A new major partnership in 2019 with City Tattersalls Club will see Sydney Fringe continue their leading work in activating space in Sydney. Taking over multiple floors within the historic venue, Sydney Fringe will be creating a multi-venue festival hub in the heart of the CBD that includes three theatre spaces, one site specific space, a large event space and a pop-up basement bar. A highlight of the festival presented at the City Tatts Hub is Dance All Night – a mammoth multi-level immersive dance party, held over the closing weekend, including a Kevin Bacon inspired Footloose flash mob that will travel the surrounding streets.

The full program for the 2019 Sydney Fringe Festival will be announced in August 2019. Please visit www.sydneyfringe.com for further details and updates.
