More About the Fringe
The Hollywood Fringe is a self-produced festival where participants stage and promote their own projects. The Fringe promotes the festival as a whole; the participants are responsible for ensuring patrons are aware and interested in their project. It’s a great opportunity for exposure, experience, and income. Ask anyone who’s participated in the New York Fringe.

Fringe locations include both traditional and unusual venues; everything from fully equipped theatres to street corners, clubs, bars, and other unexpected places. In the spirit of most Fringes, participation is open and uncensored.

A Little History
Fringe Festivals exist throughout the world as havens for underground and emerging arts scenes and originally began in Edinburgh, Scotland. In 1947, eight performance groups appeared uninvited on the “fringes” of the exclusive Edinburgh International Festival. The Edinburgh Festival Fringe has since grown into the largest arts festival in the world with hundreds of artists, thousands of performances, and millions of patrons every summer. It annually grosses over $100 million for the local economy and remains the biggest tourist draw in the UK.

Hollywood is home to dozens of Los Angeles’ premiere theatres and clubs, making it the perfect spot for the 2010 festival. The neighborhood has always been a source of unapologetic opinion, underground mentality, and a deep passion for the cutting-edge.

See you at the Hollywood Fringe!
