You can now register a show for inclusion in the 2019 Edinburgh Festival Fringe Programme.

Any artist with a story to tell or a talent to showcase can now register to be part of the greatest platform for creative freedom in the world.

The Fringe is an open access festival which means that anyone is welcome to bring a show. To get started you need a venue contract in place and then you can register online.

Check out our guide to registration or join us for our next live online FringeCast on 24 and 25 January where we'll be running through the process. You can sign up for the sessions online.

To be included in the printed Fringe Programme, your show must be fully registered by 17:00 BST on Wednesday 10 April. If your show has six or more performances you can save nearly £100 by registering by the early bird deadline of 17:00 GMT on Wednesday 13 March.

We have frozen registration fees for the 12th year running as part of our efforts to make the Fringe more affordable. In addition to securing your entry in the official Fringe Programme the registration fee also includes:

  • A listing on and on the official Fringe App on iPhone and Android.
  • Use of the Fringe Box Office, if your show is ticketed.
  • Support from our dedicated Participant Services team who can help you with everything from writing your press release to creating a touring pack.

Make 2019 your Fringe year and share you story with the world!
