The wild child of the performing arts, Auckland Live Fringe Town returns to take over the magnificent Auckland Town Hall from 25 February to 1 March with an explosive line-up of unconventional experiences.
Proudly part of the 2020 Auckland Fringe Festival, Fringe Town has enticed thrash metal stars, an alternative-indie organist, Tongan kava bowl tale-tellers, Māori haka theatre performers, artivists, and eclectic live musicians to make creative use of every nook and cranny within the Auckland Town Hall. Get ready to join us on the fringe in the very centre of town, for this extraordinary festival-inside-a-festival.
