The Fringe is turning nine this year and headed to Oxford Street for a takeover

Sydney's Fringe might not be as old or well-funded as Melbourne's but in 2018 its program will include more than 400 shows presented across Sydney, spreading over 21 different postcodes.

The big story this year is a takeover of the Oxford Street precinct, with performances at the Oxford Art Factory, East Sydney Community & Arts Centre, Eternity Playhouse, the National Art School and the Beresford (which will host a pop-up cabaret season). Just around the corner at Kings Cross Hotel, Fringe is taking over all floors of the building and will have a late night fringe club with free programming each night from 10.30pm.

There's also an international touring hub at the Old 505 Theatre, a dance hub at PACT and a physical theatre and circus hub at the Lilyfield home of Legs on the Wall.
