About The Edinburgh Fringe Festival
The Fringe is an open-access festival. That means that the programme includes anyone with a show to present and a venue willing to host them. The Edinburgh Festival Fringe Society does not produce any shows, invite anyone to perform, run any venues or pay any fees to artists, and no single individual or committee determines who can or cannot perform at the Fringe. Participation relies solely on the initiative of the thousands of performers who choose to put on a show at our festival every year.
