Adelaide Oval is getting right behind the 2017 Adelaide Fringe Festival.

Level 5 of the Riverbank Stand at Adelaide Oval will be transformed into the city’s newest Fringe destination – LIVE on 5 from 24 February to 11 March.

With free entry, Fringe fans can soak up the stunning views of the city and the hills while enjoying great Fringe entertainment along with great food and wine. The free stage on the LIVE on 5 terrace will feature over 31 fringe acts. Also – in a world first – a special stage will be built high into the level 5 seating bowl providing an opportunity for acts to stage ticketed performances with the beautiful Adelaide Oval as a backdrop.

Fringe shows are also scheduled in venues scattered throughout the Oval, offering an incredible range of experiences for Fringe-goers.

“LIVE on 5 at Adelaide Oval will be an entirely new way to experience the Fringe in 2017. We’ve really thought outside the box when it comes to stage set ups and the variety of artists who will perform here,” said Adelaide Oval SMA CEO Andrew Daniels.

“We are very excited at the opportunity for the stadium to be used as an amazing new Fringe destination…there really is something for everyone here at Adelaide Oval.”

There will be a number of headline acts performing at Adelaide Oval, with Hugh Sheridan in the California Crooners Club, kicking off the Fringe festivities in the William Magarey Room from 24 – 25 February.

Tickets to LIVE on 5 shows are on sale via FringeTIX and Ticketek from Friday, 2 December.
