Fringe25

Your Art. Your City.

For 25 years, we’ve been home to bold ideas, brave performing arts and adventurous audiences. We’ve worked with the best artists in Ireland, welcomed the most exciting international acts you can find, and threw a party or two along the way…We’re dreaming and scheming to do more, champion more artists, give you more unforgettable experiences, but we need your help. If you’ve made work with us, sat in an audience with us, danced till dawn with us, or just love the idea of supporting Irish artists, please donate €25 to our Fringe25 campaign.

For €25, you’ll help us:

  • Support artists making new work in Dublin, by providing free rehearsal and development space in Fringe Lab all-year round.
  • Support emerging artists with workshops and mentorship opportunities.
  • Provide a platform for adventurous bold work at Dublin Fringe Festival 2020 and beyond.

Donate €25 here.

Volunteer

Become a Dublin Fringe Fest Volunteer in 2020! 

Volunteers like artists illuminate the otherwise invisible. They lend themselves as vessels for creative vision, they rally together to protect the sanctity of Art and journey with the audience seeking answers and voice to radical artworks and outcomes, challenging questions and adversity as well as lols and bants in far of places and quiet back rooms, mainstages and spotlights, the quiet and the brash. Volunteering and FRINGE combined becomes power: seizing it, sharing it, speaking truth to it is what each volunteer and ambassador to the art of performance permeates.

Applications will go live in July 2020. Watch this space and our socials for more information.
