Deep within the Fringe Hub lies the pulsating heart of Melbourne Fringe, the Festival Club. This is where you come for some serious participation in Festival life. There’s a big event every night—expect to drink, to dance, to sing, to see some strange performance art, but mostly expect to be yourself and to celebrate the spirit of the Fringe until the wee hours of the morning. We call on you: the young, the queer, the disabled, the large, the small, the culturally diverse, the bravest people with the biggest ideas.

Festival Club events are all FREE and run every night of the Festival (except Mondays.) So feel free to drop in at any time and have a drink, whether its half an hour between shows, or staying for the whole night, we welcome you. Doors open at 6pm nightly (5:00pm Sunday.) There is no pre booking necessary. It is first in best dressed occasion, and limited seating is available for nightly events so please get there early to avoid disappointment.
