One of Ireland’s leading multi-disciplinary arts festivals commences on Friday, 5th September, at venues throughout Dublin City. The Tiger Dublin Fringe Festival takes place between 5th and 20th September with a host of local and international artists featuring performances in music, theatre, live art, comedy, dance, circus, and visual art.
The Tiger Dublin Fringe Festival is renowned for its energy as it takes over the city centre with all things Fringe. As many as 650 events are scheduled to take place throughout Dublin at 40 venues with in excess of 1000 people performing over the course of the weekend. For those enjoying an Ireland vacation in the country’s capital then this is not a festival to miss.
Emerging Irish arts companies and performers have traditionally used the festival as a platform to get noticed by a wider audience, as well as a showcase for the best in contemporary performance from overseas.
The Tiger Dublin Fringe has always been viewed by artists as the perfect opportunity to innovate, to mix disciplines and boundaries, finding new ways and places to create work with audiences that are receptive to taking risks and open to exploration.
Unlike many Fringe festivals across Europe and worldwide, the Tiger Dublin Fringe specifically created to seek explorative and daring work that evokes emotion in its audience and invigorates all those involved during this popular event in Ireland.
In addition to the two week festival, the organisers also run the FRINGE LAB, which takes place all year round to provide facilities for over 3,000 hours of support to artists by making space available to work in the headquarters for the festival in Temple Bar.
