With over 60 venues across five distinct creative villages on the city’s fringe, the 2013 Sydney Fringe Festival offers a unique cultural journey of experiences for those who are looking to discover something new in the back streets of Sydney.
Serving as the Sydney Fringe Festival hub, the Seymour Centre courtyard will be transformed into Emerald City – the festival’s late night garden bar with a fresh line up of free events including live music, comedy and cabaret. A place where guests can hear more about the latest festival shows, Emerald City will be open every Thursday – Saturday throughout the festival.
In the Newtown festival village, revellers can visit the Fringe’s new music venue Eliza’s Juke Joint, check out the free Artcore Guerilla Artfair event in the Dendy cinema carpark, get in touch with their inner child while playing some games at Camp Super Happy Sunshine Fun at the Newtown Neighbourhood Centre.
Leichhardt festival-goers can take in some theatre with Equus at The Forum, marvel at the fire based circus act from Circaholics Anonymous and take in a magic show at AV Union.
In Marrickville, Camelot Lounge will feature a month of live music, including the vocal styles of Abby Dobson, whilst the Factory Theatre plays host to the hilariously offbeat Fringe Comedy.
Whilst visiting Surry Hills, audiences can visit Slide Lounge for burlesque shows and a late night bar, check out an independent theatre line up at the Old Fitzroy Theatre, or catch Emma Pask at Venue 505 or Lisa Chappell performing at The Old 505 Theatre.
In the Glebe and Chippendale villages, guests can discover all that’s on offer- from terrific artisan food to hidden galleries and live performances, including a fresh comedy line up at Bedlam Bar and exhibitions at White Rabbit Gallery or Matty Grey’s Slime Time at the Seymour Centre as part of Sydney Fringe Kids.
The 2013 Sydney Fringe Festival continues to Sunday 29 September. For more information, full program, visit: www.sydneyfringe.com for details.
