Each year, a staggering 250 Fringe Festivals across the globe showcase hundreds of thousands of artists and performers. 19 million people see roughly 170,000 performers in 60,000 shows, some free, others ticketed. This equates to 8 million Fringe tickets sold in over 6 thousand venues across the globe.
As the 15th edition of YOUTH is published, we are at the tail end of the granddaddy of them all, the 71st Edinburgh Fringe Festival, while simultaneously poised on the precipice of three more Fringe Festivals which are all set to begin in the coming days and weeks.
In this edition Nora Costigan shares her picks of what’s on offer in Edinburgh, Amsterdam and Sydney, while Dave Coffey looks at the comedy highlights of the Dublin Fringe and a strand of theatre made by young people for young people called Young Radicals.
Go forth and see some whopper shows!
