Here is the exposed underbelly of the Sydney arts scene in all its glory: more unconventional, uncompromising and uncouth than anything you’re likely to see under a spotlight in the city all year.

From 10-26 September, theatres, pubs and public spaces in the inner west will play host to 280 events in the first ever, and long overdue, Sydney Fringe Festival, under artistic director Kris Stewart. “The inner west has always been a home for Sydney’s artistic community, and we want the Fringe to continue that great legacy,” Stewart says.

The two-week event will culminate in the awarding of the Independent Artist Prize, with one of the festival entrants set to win $2,500 cash.
