Adelaide Fringe activities have been held in the East Park Lands since 2006.
Adelaide Fringe’s 2013 application incorporates the Fringe Club, FringeTIX East End Box Office and the Adelaide Fringe Street Theatre Festival. The setup of event infrastructure is scheduled to start on 4 February with pull down to be completed by 22 March 2013.

Admittance to the venue is only available to pass holders, although members of the general public will be able to win free passes and attend selected special events.

Opening hours are proposed from 10.00 am to 9.00 pm on Mondays and 10.00 am to 3.00 am on Tuesdays to Sundays.
Fringe Club will consist of a bar under a circus tent and a large decked area incorporating a programmed stage, giving the feeling of a relaxed Australian back yard. The stage will be hosted by an MC and programmed nightly with live music, performances and DJ’s.

Adelaide Fringe must comply with the Council’s Noise Mitigation Standard Operating Procedures.
Adelaide Fringe organisers will be responsible for minimising impacts on the Park Lands by following Adelaide City Council’s Standard Operating Procedures for Events in the Park Lands. The event will be responsible for restoring the park to its original condition at the end of the event.
