Your Guide to Fringe Bliss: 7 Pro Tips for Finding Your Dream Event

The Adelaide Fringe Festival is back, and it’s time to dive into the large world of creativity, art and entertainment. The hardest part is selecting from the large range and find the perfect event for you. We have 7 tips to help you choose your perfect Fringe event.
1. Get Discounts off your tickets.
Who doesn’t love a good deal? Don’t miss out on special offers and discounts. Bank SA cardholders can enjoy a 25% discount on selected tickets. The Bridgeport Hotel is offering two shows at a 25% discount exclusively for Bank SA cardholders. Also be on the lookout for artists advertising discounts on their social media, you’ll often see $5 off tickets backed by Lumo Energy SA and discount codes for the first 10 tickets.
2. Consider regional venues
While the Fringe festival thrives in the city, regional venues offer unique experiences showcasing diverse open-air stages and regional shows. They also eliminate the hassle of limited urban paid parking, walking to locations and bustling crowds. This is particularly true in areas like Murray Bridge and venues like the Bridgeport Hotel, which offer a variety of free carparks, wheelchair access plus food and accommodation all in the same location to allow you to extend the experience and explore a beautiful region.

3. Arrive early
No one likes being late! Take the stress out of arriving and beat the crowds and secure prime seating position, allowing enough time to explore the venue and savour a pre-show drink so you can relax into the entertainment.
Opting for regional venues comes with the added benefit of avoiding parking problems and large crowds. Venues are committed to ensuring accessibility and inclusivity for all attendees, arriving early ensures that wheelchair-accessible spot is easily accessible if needed.
4. Secure front row seats
Sitting in the front row can add to the excitement of the event and even give attendees the opportunity to participate more actively, immersing themselves fully in the experience and perhaps even interacting directly with performers or speakers.
5. Make a Night Out of It
Extend your Fringe experience by staying overnight and exploring the region by visiting nearby restaurants and attractions. This can transform and extend your evening into a memorable trip.
6. Read the reviews or ask your friends
If you’re having trouble deciding on a show, consider reading the reviews. Alternatively, ask the people who know you best if they have any recommendations.
7. Embrace Spontaneity
You don’t have to meticulously plan every detail; instead, embrace spontaneity to increase excitement. Explore the Fringe guide and revel in the thrill of the unknown, discovering new acts that spark your curiosity. The Rural City of Murray Bridge Guide
