Perth's burgeoning fringe festival ‘Fringe World’ has just wrapped up another successful year (its second official festival since launching in 2013).
Fringe World Perth has presented thousands of performances over four weeks in February, many of which were produced and performed by local artists and arts workers.
The festival has sold more than 150,000 tickets to Perth audiences who have taken to ‘fringe bingeing’ fun-times with delight.
This dynamic budding cultural festival sits alongside Perth’s most established annual arts event PIAF (Perth International Arts Festival) which has also presented an impressive flood of shows, exhibitions and events from 17 Feb – 2 March.
Congratulations to both Fringe World Perth (presented by Artrage) and PIAF for providing such stimulus to our local creative workforce over this high time for culture in WA, and for offering such diverse and exceptional arts experiences to local audiences.
