The Cabaret Fringe Festival

The Cabaret Fringe Festival is an open-access arts festival held annually each June in Adelaide, South Australia.

Founded by brothers Paul & Adam Boylon and Jay Robinson in 2008, the festival celebrates the art form of Cabaret. Now in its ninth year, the Cabaret Fringe features the best of home-grown and national talent side by side – representing the breadth of artistic expression in Cabaret in Australia.

The founders have made a long-term commitment to nurture Cabaret in South Australia, providing independent creators and producers with a platform to develop their art.  Originally the festival was staged at cabaret club La Bohème over a few weeks in June. Nexus Arts has been apart of the festival for over four years and we are lucky enough to be a venue space for the Cabaret Fringe Festival 2017!

“Cabaret connects audience and performer like no other art form. It is our passion, and we thank you, the audience, for making it yours.” – Paul Boylon, Founder Adelaide Cabaret Fringe

Umbrella Festival
