The Fringe Comes to Town

Gawler gets an early taste of SA’s famous Mad March as the 2017 Fringe hits town this weekend with great food, continuous music, and your chance to make an early start on Adelaide’s Spring of Festivals!

The Gawler Fringe 2017 kicks off tonight with a weekend of almost continuous music. Walker Place (running between Murray St and Julian Tce) has been closed to traffic, and a temporary music venue has sprung up on the site ready to host an extraordinarily long list of local talent all set to keep the tunes coming all weekend.

The action keeps going on Saturday the 18th, and includes Jazzie Bee (11:45-12:15), Abbie Ferris (2:15-3pm), and Sarah Straschko (3:15-4pm). The evening’s line-up also includes The Brouhaha, who’s new single “Audrey’s Song” debuted on Triple J last week and is already racking up the views on YouTube.
