Auckland Fringe Festival 2017

Auckland Fringe festival is back!

Auckland Fringe is the catalyst for the most exciting, outrageous and unique events in the Auckland cultural calendar. It’s a festival with bite, appealing to all sorts of audiences through a diverse range of artists, kick-ass squished face aesthetic, and the kind of anarchic buzz little seen since punk went mainstream (thanks Green Day).

With a vision to be a seriously sassy Fringe respected both nationally and internationally, Fringe is collaborating with a fantastic team of folk. They are 100% supporting artists to up-skill and present, and determined to offer a diverse range of art forms and a totally open-access experience with venues ranging from living rooms to beaches to urban squares and theatres.

Q Theatre sits at the heart of Fringe, with a bangin' lineup of comedy, cabaret, theatre, puppetry, dance, and more! With a plethora of local and international artists, Q guarantees one of the Fringiest nights out on the block. Come for one and stay for more with tours of the city, dance extravaganzas and music to hum your summer nights away to.

Auckland Fringe is a beastie on the move, and Q is right there cantering alongside. And you’re so ready Auckland, Fringe can feel it.
