Los Angeles culture lovers: the third installment of the Hollywood Fringe Festival has set its dates for 2012. From June 14-24, Hollywood will get an "explosion of theatre performances, solo artists, dancers, experimental art, comedy, films, and cabaret" from this non-profit fest. An opening night gala, awards ceremony and after party are all part of the fest, which is open and non-curated. More information on how to be involved and key dates are below:
The event is open and non-curated; any artistic group able to book a venue within the festival’s boundaries may register. Traditional theatre spaces as well as found/DIY spaces are encouraged. Venues can list their space on the festival’s website starting Nov. 15.
Registration for the Hollywood Fringe opens February 1st. Potential participants should be aware that registration for the festival is a three-step process, and the first two steps can be completed before February. The first step is the creation of a project page on the festival’s site. Second, the project must be booked at a participating venue within the festival’s boundaries. Only then can projects register for the Fringe.
Participants may attempt to book a venue that has already signed up, or they may bring their own venue. All registrations complete before April 1 will receive placement in the Festival’s Guide, which will be distributed throughout Hollywood and greater Los Angeles starting May 2012.
