The Adelaide City Council has received an application from Adelaide Fringe for the use of Rymill Park / Mullawirraburka to enable the Fringe Club to take place between 24 February and 18 March 2012. The event set up is scheduled to start on 20 February 2012, with pull down to be completed by 23 March 2012. It is anticipated that the venue will attract approximately 500 people daily. Opening hours are proposed from 12noon to 3:00am daily (closed 27 February, 5 March and 12 March).
The Fringe Club is a gathering and meeting place for all Adelaide Fringe registered artists, sponsors and associated partners and provides a secure venue for socialising and refreshments.
It will operate every evening for the duration of the festival, except on Mondays when the venue is closed. The Fringe Club will only operate during the day for special functions and forums. The club is only accessible to pass holders and not open to the general public.
In 2012 Adelaide Fringe shifted the location of this popular club further into the centre of Rymill Park / Mullawirraburka. This is to reduce the noise impact on residents in this area of Adelaide's East End. Programming of entertainment in the club is mindful of residents and neighbouring businesses. After 1:00am they ensure noise levels are maintained at or below Adelaide City Council's Noise Mitigation Standard Operating Procedures. Adelaide Fringe will provide Council with a detailed Acoustic Management Plan for the Fringe Club tenure in the Park Lands.
The Fringe Club will consist of a bar, stage and decked area under a circus tent structure. The stage will be hosted by an MC and programmed nightly with live music, performance and DJ's.
The FUSE Festival (a Fringe managed event) will hold its Explode event as part of the opening night celebrations (24 February 2012) in club. It will be the only ticketed event to be held in the Fringe Club. Tickets to this event will be available to the general public.
Infrastructure will involve temporary fencing, event toilets, marquees, stages, lighting and sound equipment, generators, bar infrastructure, shipping containers, plant & equipment, light towers and decking.
