After a hugely successful first outing in 2020, Wynnum Fringe will return in November 2021, taking over the Brisbane bayside streets of Wynnum.
Brisbane’s home of fringe is seeking local artists and performers from a range of creative and cultural disciplines.
The festival is the passion project of Wynnum-based producer, actor and singer Tom Oliver, who has toured with Marcia Hines in ‘Velvet’ and A Day On The Green, and created the one-man show ‘More Than A Boy’.
The three-day Wynnum Fringe 2020 programme featured an eclectic and extensive array of performances also broadcast online. There were 22 sold-out shows and more than 50 events featuring 150 artists.
“Wynnum Fringe 2021 will continue to build on the success of our inaugural event last year to become an annual tradition and a must-do on the arts festival calendar,” Tom Oliver says.
“This year’s Wynnum Fringe will be an explosion of creative talent that will light up a beautiful bayside suburb with spectacular performances from local and internationally renowned artists in places you wouldn't expect to see them.”
The 2021 festival will stage a whopping six-day event centred around the festival hub of Edith Street and Bay Terrace.
“I want Wynnum Fringe to be the most inclusive place in the world, a place where we can spotlight the creative thinkers and experience their art. The Fringe is where people go to find the exciting new things that eventually creep into the mainstream. To create a space where this can happen – and secretly provide an economic boost to my hometown - is truly exhilarating.” Artist applications are open until 6 May for Wynnum Fringe 2021. Wynnum Fringe 2021 takes place from 16-21 November.
