When Lahti Fringe will confirm the artists?

The international artist call is open during turn of the year, and the process of selecting artists will begin shortly after the call has closed.

Since there is usually more than 200 applications to go through, we will confirm the artists in couple of months after closing the artist call.

Will the Fringe support artists financially?

As this is a Fringe festival, we don’t give financial support to artists, but we give the venue and marketing for free, and you are free to sell as many tickets as you can. If you use a professional ticket provider, they will take their share of the income, of course.

Many artists will find a sponsor. Also grants are offered by a wide range of organizations, from councils and local authorities to trusts and charities. You can also sell merchandise or ask for donations.

Lahti Fringe won’t take any performance fee or any share from your ticket selling.

How should I price my tickets?

We hope that as many shows as possible are free, but in that case that you want to sell tickets, 5-15 euros is a normal price of show tickets in Lahti.

How should I sell my tickets?

Lahti Fringe festival does not have a coordinated ticket booking/selling system. So we suggest that you will sell your tickets at the door of your venue. Staff to help with ticket selling can be requested from Lahti Fringe team.

Unfortunately we cannot provide venues with card payment terminal.

What is the method of choosing artists?

We have limited amount of space for the performances. This is the main reason we are not able to provide place for all applicants.

The Fringe organizers also have the right to turn down performances which have too strong political, religious or sexual emphasis, or the performance violates strongly against human rights.

How the venues have been chosen?

We continue with the venues from pilot festival of 2018.

We are also search for new venues and we try our very best to meet with all the requirements that the artists have.

How many venue slots is offered?

The amount of venues is limited. So at this point we can offer only one slot in the venues such as theater stage.

Naturally street artists can perform every day!

How the local entrepreneurs can join?

Lahti Fringe Festival welcomes all the local shops and entrepreneurs to join the Festival with sales and extended opening hours. We also hope that many entrepreneurs will offer their space as an venue for the performers.

How Lahti Fringe promotes artists?

Lahti Fringe organization promotes all artists through Lahti Fringe channels in Social Media and Internet. We also have a possibility to promote artists via specific flyers and some print media. Because we  welcome over 100 artists, the marketing channels will be full, so we hope artists use their own channels also to promote their performance.
