A few years ago, a friend invited me to attend a performance during the Indy Fringe Festival. I had no idea exactly what I was getting into, but I loved it and have been a fan ever since. What is it that hooked me?
- Mass Ave is electric during the festival. In addition to all the people moving from show to show, there are street performers, public art and much more.
- Performers come from around the world to be a part of Indy Fringe. Why do they come to Indy? Unlike many other festivals. performers in Indy earn 100% of the show revenue. The festival earns revenue from the sale of backer buttons and donations throughout the year.
- The festival is a non-jury program. What that means, is you never know what you will see. The performances are not ranked or rated before they are given a slot. Some shows are great, some are questionable, but each one is memorable in its own way.
Unsure if you will like Fringe?
