Dunedin Fringe Festival

2021 Dunedin Fringe Festival

World's most southerly festival opens opportunities for international acts

For the first time ever the world's southernmost festival, the Dunedin Fringe, has launched an online platform to enable international artists and acts to defy border restrictions and appear in their programme. This ticket-enabled platform gives artists the opportunity to present their work to an international audience, be part of the wider Fringe publicity campaign and, most importantly, be paid for their craft (100% of ticket sales go to the artist).

Registrations for online shows are open until 5pm NZT, Friday 26 February.


The Dunedin Fringe Festival is an annual event which happens every March timed to coincide with other fringe festivals in New Zealand and Australia. The Dunedin Fringe attracts artists from throughout New Zealand and overseas with a mix of established and emerging artists, across all forms of art and entertainment. 

Dunedin embraced the 2019 Dunedin Fringe Festival with over 27,000 people attending artist and festival-produced events.

Independent artist events form the backbone of Dunedin Fringe Festival and are facilitated through an open-access registration process. 

Initiated in 2000, Dunedin Fringe aims to bring experimental contemporary art to a wider audience and to support the work of emerging artists.
