As Sydney Fringe's free official opening party, Fringe Ignite will take over the festival's new Oxford Street Hub with 28 gigs across ten spaces. Curated by singer-songwriter Thelma Plum, the extravaganza will let you catch local singer-songwriters, bands, DJs, rappers and more in one evening.
Listen out for Adrian Eagle's uplifting rootsy sounds, the powerhouse vocals of Alice Terry who released debut album The Fear Of... in June, singer-songwriter-producer Rainbow Chan and loads of others. Music will be resounding wherever you go — from the National Art School and UNSW Art and Design to Stonewall and Ching-a-lings to Ariel Bookseller and Daily Jocks.
If, come 10pm, you're far from ready for bed, head to the afterparty at the Fringe Club, in the Kings Cross Hotel.
