About The Lagos Fringe

Lagos, Nigeria will experience breathtaking performances, experimental work, exhibitions and an array of training opportunities at one of the largest outdoor festivals in West Africa scheduled to hold from Tuesday 17 to Sunday 22 November 2020.

Lagos Fringe has grown in the number of performances, as well as in the size of participants and audience engagement since its launch in 2018. In November 2018 & 2019, the festival held for 8 days and 6 days respectively, featuring over 156 shows in about 21 venues with a combined attendance of over 5500 people. The Lagos Fringe hashtag has over 85 million impressions on social media.

This year, we are Recreating The Future! 

We want the work, performances, artists and the outlook of the festival to reflect the hybrid nature of the festival where 50% of the experience will be in the digital space and 50% will be physical interactions with social distancing measures in place. We are also working round the clock to design our online presence to reflect a more interactive and exciting view from the live venues so it is not monotonous and static in presentation.

There will also be a vibrant arts market on display throughout the festival period, Short film screenings and feedback sessions where filmmakers will be on ground and virtually to engage with the audience.

Some of the other highlights of this year includes; a music concert- an evening of dazzling fiesta of fun, colour and life featuring a range of artists at the festival Hub. The concert will be followed by a brilliant fireworks display to top off the night, ensuring we are in the mood for the holiday season!. Another highlight is the street food fiesta where there will be food stalls of all types showcasing delicious dishes and tasty treats. Some festival goers will learn tips of the trade with live cooking demonstrations and discover hidden food secrets.

The festival partners for this edition include; Goethe Institut, Freedom Park and Orijin with support from the United States Consulate General.
