In a blink of an eye, Perth’s favourite annual event has come and gone again for yet another year.
Taking over the city and turning it into a hive of activity, FRINGE WORLD’s huge program for this year saw more than 700 events from international and local homegrown artists staged at more than 130 venues across the city.
Kleenheat’s Partnerships Marketing Manager Teale Moyers said it was great to see the Festival being embraced by the Western Australian community.
“As proud major partners of FRINGE WORLD for two years running, it was fantastic to see support for such a diverse event that creates a real buzz in our beautiful home state,” Teale said.
“The Fringe Festival is a wonderful opportunity to shine the spotlight on our own WA local talent as well as showcase some amazing national and international acts.”
Kleenheat bringing the sizzle factor
As the local energy behind this year’s festival, Kleenheat added a little sizzle to the Fringe Festival this year through our Kleenheat ‘sizzle factor’, a handy rating guide to all things Fringe.
Kleenheat also sponsored the Cabaret Award at the Festival’s awards ceremony, where FRINGE WORLD’s best acts were recognised and acknowledged.
The 2019 Festival recorded more than 400,000 ticketed attendance and also saw growth in a number of programs.
Amber Hasler, FRINGE WORLD Festival Director said that the Festival this year expanded to new hubs and extended seasons of the popular offerings.
“Audiences have been loving the new Festival offerings this year including a packed program at The Woodside Pleasure Garden, a new hub at Yagan Square and new programs popping up in Subiaco and Bassendean,” she said.
“This year more than ever before it felt like every suburb and local community embraced all that the Fringe has to offer with shows performing in Fringe venues appearing in 39 residential suburbs and Fringe customers coming from all over our city and beyond.”
Regionally the Funtavia program extended for an additional weekend in Geraldton and the Festival entertained smaller regional towns with the Outer Fringe Tour reaching to Merredin, Kattaning, Ravensthorpe and Northam.
Kleenheat was proud to support this major WA event for yet another year as the energy of the FRINGE WORLD 2019.
