Sign up to join the Fringe at the 40th Anniversary of Dumfries & Galloway’s Arts Festival!  (24 MAY – 2 JUNE, 2019)

Calling all artists, venues and promoters! Help make memories at Scotland’s largest rural performing arts festival ….

Join the Fringe at Dumfries & Galloway’s Arts Festival!

We’re looking to pack our programme with more independently-run shows from the region and reach a wider audience. It’s a great opportunity for artists, venues and promoters to show off our region’s wealth of talent and diversity of exciting, innovative performing arts! Fringe benefits include FREE publicity across our marketing channels which incorporate web, print, press and social media, as well as our printed brochure with its print run of 15,000.

The Fringe is a popular addition to the ten-day festival. Last year the Fringe alone included more than seven fantastic shows in an exciting programme of music, drama, comedy, dance and literature, performed at our brilliant variety of venues across the region which includes arts centres, village halls, inns and Scotland’s oldest and smallest theatres!
