Dublin Fringe Festival 2017
Celebrating 23 years as Ireland’s leading multidisciplinary arts festival, the 2017 Dublin Fringe Festival returns! Featuring the freshest new theatre, music, live art, comedy, dance and spectacle from Irish and international artists.
This September the city will host more than 400 events in over 30 venues including various buildings and outdoor spaces.
Dublin Fringe Festival, unlike many Fringes internationally, is a wholly curated festival seeking innovative and daring work that impacts, moves and invigorates. It is a platform for new, emerging Irish arts companies and a showcase for the best contemporary theatre and dance shows touring internationally. For artists, the Fringe facilitates an opportunity to innovate, to cross disciplines and boundaries and to find new ways and places to create.
