Edfringeware, the show registration system, is now open for new 2015 registrations and can be accessed using the link below. 

Open edfringeware to register your show

Registration will remain open for listings online and in the Fringe App until the end of the 2015 Fringe on 31 August but there are a few important registration deadlines listed in the following section. If you have enquiries relating to registering your show, please contact, or visit our ticketing options page for further information.

Please note the following important dates:

  • Wednesday 11 March 2015 - discount deadline. Register your show by this date to benefit from a discounted registration fee.
  • Wednesday 08 April 2015 - programme deadline. The last day you can register your show for inclusion in the printed programme.

Further sign-off dates will be announced in due course.
