Well out from fringes

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Fashion -

FRINGE World 2015 felt big­ger than ever and now there is the re­cently re­leased 2015 Fes­ti­val Im­pact Re­port to prove it.

This year’s event dou­bled in size from 2014 and is now the third largest fringe fes­ti­val in the world, achiev­ing the feat in just four years.

Fes­ti­val di­rec­tor Am­ber Hasler said the suc­cess of Fringe World was thanks to the spirit and en­thu­si­asm of the WA com­mu­nity: the gen­er­ous au­di­ences, the fes­ti­val’s for­ward-think­ing part­ners and tal­ented artists.

“2015 was a land­mark year for Fringe World, with the fes­ti­val achiev­ing box of­fice sales of more than $6.4 mil­lion, mak­ing it the largest box of­fice earner of any arts fes­ti­val in WA,” Hasler said.
