Melbourne Fringe Festival

15 September to 2 October 2016

Melbourne Fringe is a celebration of cultural democracy and art for everyone. By embracing diversity and a spirit of independence, we create a unique space for artistic self-expression linked to the life of our great city. We’re here to challenge perceptions and shake up the hierarchy, to be brave and unafraid, to explore the boundaries of what art is and can be. And what’s more, everyone’s invited.

Melbourne Fringe is the place to go for pure, unadulterated, uncurated and unexpected artistic discovery. We help artists develop and provide a platform for a vast, diverse range of voices, in celebration of the idea that when we come together, we create meaning, and beauty, and laughter. This is art by the people, for the people, with the people, so come on in, people. This is Melbourne Fringe.

This year, Upstairs @ Errol's is proud to officially be part of the Fringe Hub hosting four exciting shows;

  • How Can You Sleep at Night?
  • manfül
  • Nxt Lvl Infinity
  • Where The Wild Woman Is?
