Review of 2016

We’ll be talking about Dublin Fringe Festival 2016 for years to come. We laughed, we cried, we danced and we were changed as 645 incredible Irish and international makers took to our stages and brought their best. We were knocked out by their heart and ambition.

Fringe 2016

73 productions40 world premieres

73 productions took over 23 different locations in the heart of Dublin: 40 world premieres, sell-out runs, standing ovations to beat the band, and the beginning of something very special as an Irish company headlined the Spiegeltent for the first time.

The artists of Fringe 2016 charted new possibilities in this year’s festival. Thanks to them for being intrepid, daring, truthful and skilled. Thanks to our wonderful volunteers, technicians and box office staff.

And thanks to you. Each of the 412 performances of this year’s Fringe was attended by the best kind of audiences. Audiences who are willing to take a risk, who want to be challenged, who are curious. You embraced the adventurous spirit of Fringe and made it our most memorable yet.

We’re proud of our Fringe. We’re excited to see what comes next. We will continue to support and nurture artists year-round at FRINGE LAB, to cultivate connections and to facilitate the brightest and boldest makers Ireland has to offer. 2017: Bring it on!
