The Southside Fringe will run from the 11th - 27th May 2018! With 200 events in 50 venues, this is the biggest community organised event in Glasgow!

The Southside Fringe is focused upon providing a fortnight of quality opportunities for acts, performers and musicians. We also hope to involve as many venues and businesses as we can with a view to boosting existing custom over the fortnight and to raise the profile of the Southside on the arts landscape and draw new customers, visitors and audiences to the wonderful facilities the Southside has to offer. None of us as organisers will be drawing earnings from the fringe and are running the not for profit business as volunteers.

It’s an incredibly exciting time in the Southside with several venues actively encouraging creativity and supporting local Southside talent. The ethos of the Southside Fringe is very much ‘strength in numbers’ : the more facets of the community and local businesses who get involved the louder our voice and the bigger the Southside’s profile will be on the festival map.
