Registering your show
Edfringeware, the show registration system, is now open for new 2016 registrations and can be accessed using the link below.
The show registration guides contain detailed information on the show registration process.
Registration will remain open for listings online and in the Fringe App until the end of the 2016 Fringe but there are a few important registration deadlines listed below. If you have enquiries relating to registering your show, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org, or visit our ticketing options page for further information.

- Your show listing and image online at www.edfringe.com and in the Fringe app for iPhone and Android.
The following dates are important deadlines in the Fringe show registration process:

Shows can still be registered after the printed programme deadline and will have a listing online at edfringe.com and on the Fringe App.
2016 early on sale dates
The first shows of 2016 will be available on our website on Thursday 28 January, and additional shows are added each month until programme launch on Wednesday 08 June. The full set of onsale dates are:

Your show must be approved by both the company and the venue by the deadline for a corresponding on sale date. In addition to the main registration deadlines listed above, please allow a minimum of 10 working days between registering your show with the Fringe Society and an approval deadline. This will allow us enough time to check your registration, produce a proof of your show listing for you to sign off and ask your venue for their approval.
There is a step-by-step guide to the registration process in our Fringe Guide to Registering a Show which you can use while completing the form or before your start to help you gather all the information you’ll need. There is also online help text available in edfringeware.
Note: the 2016 Guide to Registering a Show will be coming soon. In the meantime, the above links to the 2015 guide which should be used for reference only.
During the registration process, we may amend your show copy to bring it into line with our style guide as necessary. For further information about our style guide, please refer to the Fringe Programme Production Style Guide.
If planning to register a show for the 2016 Fringe and are looking for ideas while formatting your show copy, you may find it useful to refer to the 2015 Edinburgh Festival Fringe Programme.
