Registration is not yet open for Fringe 2024
Show registration for Fringe 2024 will open on Monday 08 January 2024.
To register a Fringe show, you need to have a confirmed contract with your venue in place. Your venue will let you know if you should register with us directly, or through their own channels.
If you are registering your own show, you'll be able to do this via our online platform, Edfringeware, once registration opens.
If you have used Edfringeware before then you will be able to sign in with the same credentials. If you're brand new to Edfringeware you'll need to register as a new user.
We've produced some resources to assist you with the registration process:
- Download the Fringe guide to registering a show in Edfringeware
- Browse the 2023 Edinburgh Festival Fringe programme for ideas on formatting your show copy.
If you have any questions relating to show registration, you can email our Registration team on [email protected].
As part of the process the Fringe Society team will proof your show information, for consistency and fairness we use the Fringe style guide to do this:
Registration deadlines and show reveal dates
Key programme deadlines
There are two main deadlines for having your show listing included in the Fringe programme.
- The early-bird discount deadline is 17:00 BST on Wednesday 06 March 2024.
- The final deadline for inclusion in the print programme is 17:00 BST on Wednesday 10 April 2024.
After the printed programme deadline, registration will close while the team proof all registered shows for the final document, and will re-open for web-only listings from Monday 03 June 2024. From this point shows can be listed on the website within 10 working days of approving their show proof.
On-sale and sign-off deadlines
Once you have registered your show and signed off your listing for inclusion in the Fringe programme, it can be listed online and, if ticketed, go on sale. This can happen on one of three on-sale dates ahead of programme launch:
|Company sign-off date||On-sale date|
|On-sale 1||Monday 05 February||Thursday 22 February|
|On-sale 2||Monday 20 March||Thursday 04 April|
|On-sale 3||Tuesday 24 April||Thursday 09 May|
Programme launch: Thursday 12 June 2024
- Once you complete the registration process, it can take up to 10 working days for our team to get back to you with a proof of your show listing for you to sign off.
- If you want to be included in a specific on-sale, we recommended registering at least 10 days before the sign-off date.
- If you register on a sign-off date, you will not be included in the very next on-sale date.
