The 2022 Adelaide Fringe program was launched today, with tickets on sale now for over 1000 events across over 350 venues.
The Fringe is the biggest festival in the Southern Hemisphere and it will again fill Adelaide with vibrant arts and culture for 31 days and nights during February and March.
Also announced were the 2022 festival Ambassadors: multi-award-winning comedian/entertainer Reuben Kaye, comedian/actor/radio presenter Nazeem Hussain and actor/comedian/influencer Diana Nguyen, who will help promote the world-class event to audiences nationwide and beyond.
The 2022 program includes the worldwide premiere of Sky Song at the Adelaide Showgrounds, a first-of-its-kind drone art show incorporating hundreds of drones flying in formations to First Nations stories, music and poetry narrated by Archie Roach. Audiences can also marvel at Electric Dreams, a festival of immersive storytelling that explores the lines between art and technology with VR swings on the lawns of the South Australian Museum, or cycle through the streets with Blast Theory’s Rider Spoke.
The Fringe caravan will also hit the road to bring a taste of the festival to regional destinations within South Australia including Victor Harbor, Murray Bridge, Waikerie, Naracoorte and Kingston S.E, delivering a two-hour spectacular of family-friendly entertainment and culture.
Adelaide Fringe Director and CEO Heather Croall says while the Fringe celebrates the inventiveness of the arts community in Australia every year, in 2022 it also recognises the resilience of artists who have faced a challenging time over the past 18 months.
“We are so excited for Fringe to be back for another year and we can’t wait for audiences to start planning their Fringe experiences. The program features over 1000 shows and over 350 venues, big and small. There is something for everyone. The diverse program will inspire, entertain and captivate audiences,” Ms Croall said.
