Broadway Pop-Up Fringe

A roller skating rink will pop up on Broadway Sydney's rooftop during Fringe Festival

Sydney Fringe Festival is setting a new precedent for a rooftop's potential with their ambitious program's newest addition — a rooftop roller skating rink. From September 5 through 30, the massive arts and culture festival will take over the open air rooftop of the Broadway shopping centre (which apparently is a thing) and install a roller rink for the masses. Cue the 80s dance moves and big ol' hairdos.

The rink will be open Wednesdays through Sundays (weekdays 5–10pm; weekends 9am–10pm) and entry tickets are available at the rink only. In an upside-down-world change of norms, weekend tickets will actually be on the cheap — from 9am–5pm you can nab entry tickets for just five bucks a pop. All other operating times will cost you $15, with rental roller skates included. A DJ will be on hand each night too, with a playlist of tunes you can skate along to.

Along with the rink will be a pop-up store featuring two Sydney-based designers, Stavroula Adameits and Katie-Louise Nicol-Ford, who have created one-off designs for the shop and are also the creators of this year's custom Fringe Festival print. Pieces from their respective fashion labels, Frida Las Vegas and Nicol & Ford, will be available for purchase at the pop-ups throughout the month.
