Unlike some other Fringe festivals, Amsterdam Fringe arranges venues for all its participants. As a result, the number of venues at the festival is limited. For this reason, a selection of 65-75 performances will be made from all application that will eventually be shown at the festival.

In the selection process, professionalism and feasibility within the (production) conditions of Fringe are first considered. In addition, the artistic plan is examined: originality, use of (special/fringy) venue and interdisciplinarity are important criteria. Ultimately, an attempt is made to create a program with the best variety of creators and works as possible, in which we also have an eye for trends that can be discovered in the total sum of applications.

Applications from the full width of the performing arts field and its crossovers are welcome. Music concerts and stand-up comedy acts are generally not accepted, unless the maker can sufficiently indicate that the work transcends the genre. Note that the maximum duration of a performance is 60 minutes.

After application, you will hear on March 6th at the latest if your performance is selected for Amsterdam Fringe Festival 2019. When your show is selected, you can confirm your participation in the festival by paying the application fee of € 150 (ex VAT). Paying the application fee assures you of a playground at the festival. In addition, the application fee guarantees you a place on the website and in the program booklet. You also get free access to the How2Fringe workshops and the weekly consultation hours. Participants of Amsterdam Fringe Festival get a percentage of the ticket sales. See for more info the Terms & Conditions.
