WYNNUM FRINGE 2022 UNVEIL BUMPER PROGRAM OF HEADLINE ACTS AND HOMEGROWN HEROES
Wynnum Fringe has raised the curtain on a packed program of star-studded performances, special events, spectacular artists and family firsts, converging on Brisbane’s beautiful Bayside from 16 November to 4 December 2022.
Fresh from performing at the NRL Grand Final, Australian rock royalty DIESEL headlines the Raine & Horne Wynnum Spiegeltent in an exclusive one-night-only performance to kick off the Rock The Bay: Pop Up Series on Thursday 24 November.
Wynnum Fringe Founder and Director Tom Oliver promised an arts and cultural event on a scale not seen before on the Bayside, Australia’s latest and greatest performing arts hub.
The three-week arts, entertainment and cultural extravaganza spans a dazzling array of performance genres including music, dance, comedy, theatre, cabaret, burlesque, circus as well as weekend family programming.
“I am hugely proud of how Wynnum Fringe has grown from a three-day event in 2020 – developed as an economic and artistic response to COVID – to this year, welcoming more than 35,000 people over 19 days and celebrating the best in contemporary, independent and alternative arts and entertainment,” Mr Oliver said.
“This year’s program celebrates our roots with the free family programming and local artist spotlights our community knows and loves and embraces our incredible growth with a huge line-up of big-name acts, internationally renowned productions and special events to dazzle visitors of all ages.
“I’m especially excited to welcome people to the Wynnum Fringe Garden, a brand-new festival hub at George Clayton Park on the shores of beautiful Moreton Bay and our homage to the great Fringe Festival hubs of the world.
“The Garden is not only the home of the Spiegeltent but a place of gathering and celebration, where people meet before a show or grab a drink afterwards for a lively debrief and where free entertainment attracts families on weekends and couples and groups of friends at night.”
As well as housing the Spiegeltent, Wynnum Fringe Garden features a Ferris Wheel, a container bar with a rooftop seating area, food trucks, artists performing Rock The Bay: Pop Up Series gigs daily in Miles: The Caravan Stage and roving entertainment from Cocoloco and Memetica.
This year, a different theme runs through each week of Wynnum Fringe, starting with yana marumba, meaning “walk good” in Quandamooka language, and the name of the festival’s official opening event on Friday 18 November.
This theme highlights Wynnum Fringe’s strong connection to Country and the Bayside’s Indigenous community as well as First Nations programming including Dane Simpson’s Didgeridoozy, Ethan Enoch-Barlow and Sachem’s all-ages gig at Bayside Music Hall and Memetica’s giant Elder Puppet Janggaburru, part of yana marumba.
This year, Wynnum Fringe offers three VIP Party Packages for groups of 10 or more including premium seating
