The Cabaret Fringe Festival contributes to the cultural, social and economic fabric of the state. It connects artists to audiences, who experience the diversity of expression that makes cabaret such a popular and accessible art-form. We exist because cabaret exists, and what exists here doesn’t exist anywhere else in the world. At CabFringe we cultivate cabaret, celebrate community, put people first, think yes, take risks, thrive on change, honour our past, and push forward.
Cab Fringe was born of a revolution. Cabaret Fringe founder, The Late Great Frank Ford AM once said, “We should be trying to build our own culture. That’s how much we’ll be judged in the future; not by how well we can reproduce other people’s cultures but how much we can produce ourselves.”
Cab Fringe 2023 brought forward a new logo, brand and voices, Adelaide-grown and Adelaide’s own. We continue to cultivate ongoing collisions between community and art.
