Information for Fringe 2015

So you’re thinking about Fringe 2015? GREAT! Here are the things you need to know:

Fringe is open access and non-programmed, all shows must be self-produced, including securing your own venue and marketing your work, other than that, go for it! So long as it’s basically legal you can do it and we will support you in every way we can. Fringe will help you find and make the contacts you need whether it be the gardeners at Wellington City Council or the landlord of a carpark in Newtown.

Registrations open online 27 August 2014 and close 8 October 2014. You will create a log in so you can return to edit or add information to your registration up to 8 October 2014.

We hold a series of open forums in the run up to Fringe covering all the aspects you need to know from funding and producing, DIY venue running to marketing and front of house. We really encourage you to make the most of these. Information is one thing we can give you in abundance.

Coming from overseas? NZ Fringe holds ‘festival status’ with Immigration NZ meaning you may not need a work visa as a registered participant in NZ Fringe. For more information contact

Got questions or an idea you want to talk through? Are you a venue interested in hosting Fringe events and shows? Get in touch via

Here is some more of that information (NB, some of this information will have changed for 2015, a full artist pack will be made available to you upon registration):

Fringe Libation Lounge Sign-Up

The Fringe Libation Lounge is a late night Fringe variety chaos hosted by comedian James Nokise. Each evening will have a chance for registered Fringe shows/events to get up on stage, be interviewed, do a show teaser, throw glitter, be amazing, as well as a chance to meet and mingle with other Fringe artists.

There will be 8 acts each night, 2 of which will be a music act to close both the first and second half of the evening. Each act will be 3-5minutes in length, with the music acts being 5-10minutes (the equivalent of 2 songs). If you want to be considered for a spot, fill out the following form and we will be in touch.

Wed 5, Thu 13, Thu 20 and Thu 27 February
10.30pm - 12.30am (approx) at Rogue and Vagabond in Glover Park

NB: You need to be a registered 2014 Fringe artist to apply. Spaces are limited so selection will be based primarily on variety.
