Wynnum Fringe 2021 Programme

Wynnum Fringe Wynnum Fringe

Edinburgh, Adelaide. . . Wynnum.


Wynnum (Brisbane) takes centre stage as Australia’s latest and greatest performing arts hub, and this year two massive events are set to shine the spotlight on the seaside suburb in 2021.

After a successful inaugural outing in 2020, Wynnum Fringe is back with a star-studded line-up of local, national and international acts across six days in November.

Also debuting is Rock The Bay, a one-day outdoor concert on the front hill of Iona College, Lindum. It’ll serve as a musical precursor to the festival event. Rock The Bay features homegrown icons and up-and-coming talents, hosted by Wynnum Fringe Founder Tom Oliver and Johnny Balbuziente (‘Married At First Sight’).

Rock The Bay will be headlined by Aussie music legend Daryl Braithwaite, who will be joined on the line-up by Kate Ceberano, Bachelor Girl, Sarah McLeod, Wildfire Manwuurk, Luke Kennedy, Mark Sholtez, Women In Docs, Ella Fence and Lucid Safari.

“Having performed at outdoor concerts such as A Day on the Green and being a music tragic myself, I love the vibe of music festivals and wanted to bring that to my hometown, Wynnum,” Founder Tom Oliver says.

“For the performers and audience, it’s a great opportunity to celebrate and support the music industry, with classic tracks performed by our heroes from the ‘80s and ‘90s alongside new tunes from local talent creating the next phase of our musical culture.”

Wynnum Fringe will see the Raine & Horne Spiegeltent showcasing ‘Velvet Rewired’, direct from its Sydney Opera House run, led by disco diva Marcia Hines.

Tom had a lead role in the original production of ‘Velvet’ alongside Marcia.

“My journey from a lead role in the original production of ‘Velvet’ to being a Co-Producer on the new version and bringing the new show with Marcia Hines and an array of acrobats, aerialists, vocalist and circus performers, including my good mate Craig The Incredible Hula Boy, to Wynnum Fringe as part of its national tour is extremely exciting,” Tom says.

The second iteration of Wynnum Fringe will establish it as an annual event, expanding its offering and footprint with an extended six-day programme of both free and ticketed shows, also including pat TED Talk, part couples therapy show ‘Alexa, Turn On The Lights’, ‘Robot Dance Circus’, rat-human hybrid ’Sewer Rat Girl’, anecdotes and songs from Leena Salim in ‘At Home Among The Gum Trees’ and more.

“We’re being ambitious, we’re being bold and we’re being incredibly risky (and risqué) – we’re here to put Wynnum on the global cultural map,” Tom continues.

“Attendees at this year’s Wynnum Fringe can expect world-class entertainment from local, national and international artists and creators spanning a variety of performance genres from comedy to dance, music to circus and everything in-between.”

Rock The Bay takes place on 9 October. Wynnum Fringe is on from 16-21 November.
