A brief history

Founded by brothers Paul & Adam Boylon and Jay Robinson in 2008, the festival celebrates the art form of Cabaret. Now in its twelfth 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.


From Berlin to Broadway, Downtown to Outback – artists have found a home and a dedicated audience for Cabaret each June in the clubs, bars and venues of Adelaide. We have made a long-term commitment to nurture Cabaret in South Australia, providing independent creators and producers with a platform to develop their art. From humble beginnings in 2008 when a modest number of shows were staged at cabaret club La Bohème over a few weeks in June, the Cabaret Fringe Festival now sees dozens of acts performing at venues all around Adelaide.


Cabaret connects audience and performer like no other art form. It is our passion, and we thank you, the audience, for making it yours.


We look forward to seeing you in 2021!
