Anywhere Festival 2023

Various Locations

Anywhere Festival is a globally unique and local cultural experience where locals and visitors alike discover shows in nooks and crannies anywhere but a theatre:

where local businesses and homes host performances so artists can creative incredible work without all the financial burdens that are often placed on them when presenting independently.

Anywhere Festival began in 2011 as Brisbane’s revolutionary take on the fringe festival concept, putting artists first so they could take creative risks without the financial risks with rent free non traditional spaces, creative development support, producing resources and festival marketing that helps build audiences.

For audiences, Anywhere Festival becomes a discovery of places and performances by using local nooks and crannies: poetry in light houses, circus in driveways, music in backyards, storytelling on ferries, theatre in hedge mazes and musicals in aeroplanes.

Since 2011 it has become something much more than “Brisbane’s Fringe Festival” with 500 performances by independent performing artists every year, being welcomed into Noosa and the Sunshine Coast.

Anywhere offers up a vision where artists can step away from the fringe and siloed performance spaces to be at the core of society by being anywhere.

Anywhere Festival has inspired many other festivals and practitioners, providing the framework and ideas that many have followed when COVID-19 restrictions closed theatres and the idea of performing in streets, outdoors in a non traditional spaces became the only way.
