The NZ Fringe Festival needs you!

In 2018 we had our very first billeting programme and over 20 artists were housed by kind souls during our 2018 Fringe Festival! In 2019 we’re doing it again!

We are looking for responsible and friendly locals to host a number of out of town artists coming over in March 2019. Whether you can host 1 or 10, on a 3 seater couch or a lavish four poster bed, we want to hear from you!

Most of the artists coming from out of town are coming on very tight budgets, and would benefit greatly from the generosity of locals. In return, the NZ Fringe can offer hosts free Addict Cards, which discounts shows, and gives specials at our Fringe venues and local associated businesses. The artists themselves can offer you tickets to their events, as well as the returned generosity if you choose to visit their hometowns! Of course the greatest satisfaction of them all is the satisfaction of knowing you’ve helped the artists visiting our fair city out!

The Festival runs from March 1st until the 24th, and any time within that period that you can help us out is awesome!

If this sounds like something you’d be interested in, then hop along to this form and fill it out, and we’ll be in touch!

Feel free to pass this along to any of your friends or family who might be able to help out!

If you helped out last year, with sharing your home with artists and are keen to do it again, great! If you’re not keen to do it again, we’d love to know why. Anyway we can improve the system, we’d like to try.
