Dublin Fringe Festival 2022

Dublin Fringe Festival is back and it’s big!  

Celebrating the glorious, the curious and the improbable from the top of the skyline’s tallest buildings, to the peace of your bathtub at home, in streetside confession boxes and on off-road bus tours, the 2022 programme is packed with performances that will shift your perspective and offer you release.

Dublin Fringe is amplifying the artists who create space for communal reflection and shared laughter. We’re shining a spotlight on the weird, the hyper-local and those who forge their own path. We’re introducing the brightest new talent – more than half of the artists in the programme are presenting work at the festival for the very first time. Get lost. Get found. Get together.
