Because you also need a bit of stability, this year we are transforming the beautiful old Compagnietheater into the Fringe Festival Center. With a heavy dose of Fringe shows, from Fringe4Frees to CLUB GEWALT’s Fringe Nightclub, practical things like the central ticket desk, and impractical things like drinks and good chats.
On Thursday September 1st we open the festival heart. Saturday September 3rd is Sneak Saturday, where you can see previews from 16:00-18:00 of Fringe shows. The Fridays will be CLUB GEWALT’s Fringe Nightclub. On the evening of Sunday, 11th September, we will also have our It’s a Wrap Party there, where we will hand out the Amsterdam Fringe Awards and sit in a corner to cry because it’s all over.
The central box office can de found in the festival hub. The box office is open from 14:00 to 22:00 during the weekend and from 16:00-22:00 on weekdays. At the other Fringe locations you can buy tickets for the shows at the door. Be advised: cash only. In the Compagnietheater you can pay both by cash and pin. But the easiest way is to buy your tickets online.
Misers and paupers: look out for the Fringe$Free logo. Free Fringe for the people in the festival hub, and during the Buurtsupers. Feeling philantrophic? Look for a hat to throw some money into. In the Compagnietheater you can see the following Fringe4Frees: A Trip Down Memory Lane, Anouk Slik, I Will Carry You over Hard Times, Laten we hem een Centje geven, en Recycled in Death.
Join the party. CLUB GEWALT hosts KARAOKI KANYE. In this minimal music party installation, decadence is fresh, water is intoxicating and confusion is order. The Fringe Nighclub is us promising you entertainment and giving you art. There will be drinks, and, like at a regular party, entry and exit are at your own whim.
On 1, 2, 3, 8, 9 en 10 September, from 21:30.
Need Fringe on your corner? You’re in luck! We have invented the Fringe buurtsuper: a free, public Fringe event in the neighbourhood. With sneak previews, Fringe4Free shows and performances by the hairdressers, the butcher, and the greengrocer in Noord, Oost, Zuid en West.
