Artist Tix And Fringe Club
Read on if you are a Darwin Fringe Artist.
Pick up your Artist Passes from the Festival Hub info desk after emailing firstname.lastname@example.org the list of your show’s artists. Be honest; it’s a small town so word gets around if you sign up your nan and her girl gang for Artist Passes they didn’t earn.
We do not replace lost Artist Passes, keep them safe.
This pass will get you access to up to 4 shows in the Hub for free that haven’t already sold out. In the case that a show has reached capacity and sold out you will not be permitted entry. REMEMBER These passes do not give you access to shows in other venues.
Artist Tix help share the love, Fringe Show to Fringe Show.
All Darwin Fringe presenting artists are eligible for Artist Tix admission to Artist Tix registered shows during the Festival.
All HUB shows at Brown’s Mart, Happy Yess, and Mayfair Gallery are open for Fringe Tix admission, plus selected others indicated on each online event listing.
Each Darwin Fringe presenting artist is entitled to up to four Fringe Tix events.
- Have your artist card on you.
- Have at least 1 show left on your card (we count them off each time).
- Wait until the show starts to find out if there are any free seats.
- Do as directed by the Ticketing staff – if they say the event is full or Artist Tix are unavailable, say thanks and try for another awesome show.
If there are shows you absolutely want to see we recommend you BUY A TICKET, just like you want people to do for your show! Artist Tix are only available if there are seats to be filled once the show has started.
All Darwin Fringe presenting artists are able to attend the Fringe Club upon showing their Artist Pass on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights during the Festival.
Although you are able to attend for free, it’s a nice gesture to tip the act performing if you can – the Ticketing staff will accept donations to the Fringe Club artists of the night (who, just like you, rely on door sales).
