The party that is the Adelaide Fringe is on its way!

Of the 517 venues hosting festival attractions, A Club Adelaide, Tomich Vineyard and the South Australian Jockey Club are among the 108 newcomers set to discover the magic of hosting Fringe events.
A variety of Fringe ‘hubs’ will span across suburban and regional Adelaide – from Gawler to Port Noarlunga, Whyalla to Mount Gambier, while the Fringe on Tour will reach Murray Bridge and IKEA for the first time.
