For Artists

Register for the Melbourne Fringe Festival

Calling all creatives!

Are you ready to take your new idea to the stage? Or perhaps your idea belongs in the streets, in a loungeroom or in the back of a car. Wherever it is, the Melbourne Fringe Festival is the platform for you. Help us celebrate our 40th birthday by bringing your talent to the world and creating the biggest, boldest Festival we’ve ever seen.

The Melbourne Fringe Festival is proudly open access, so whether it’s your 40th Fringe or your very 1st (welcome newbie!), we’ve got a spot for you. Whether your event belongs centre stage, online or roaming the streets, we want you to help us throw the biggest birthday Festival and take over Melbourne this spring.

Your registration scores you a gorgeous event listing on our website, access to our ticketing platform, inclusion in our Festival , support from our in-house publicist, an artist pass with perks for events and Club Fringe, touring and awards opportunities, and a suite of workshops, networking events and information resources.

After a couple of years with events being postponed, pivoted and generally precarious, we can’t wait to pack our program full of events and artists ready to hit venues, screens and the streets of Melbourne. So, what are you still doing here reading this?! You’ve got a rego to do!
