Perth embraced FRINGE WORLD’s huge program of over 670 shows across more than 160 venues, over 400,000 ticketed attendance and generated box office sales of more than $12 million.

Ticketed attendance increased by almost 50,000 from last year's Fringe and the reported total attendance for the 2019 FRINGE WORLD Festival was over 850,000, cementing Perth as the third largest Fringe in the world!
