Open Call 2024 has started! .

Delft Fringe Festival is the place for new makers who are at the start of their career and want to play in the most unexpected, vibrant locations in the historic city of Delft. For the thirteenth edition, the festival is looking for makers who dare to step outside their comfort zone, who know how to touch the public or challenge world views. Artists can register from October 1 to December 31, 2023 for the festival that takes place between May 28 and 9 June 9, 2024. 


You can register with new or existing work from all genres in the performing arts. From opera to ballet and from cabaret to circus. And all the crossovers in between. All languages ​​are also welcome. The festival offers a playground for new professional makers who are at the beginning of their career: makers who have followed an art training, are still working on it or are self-taught. By working with an open call, we present an inclusive and diverse program at the festival. We therefore invite everyone to register.
