The Seoul Fringe Festival is scheduled to take place at the Oil Tank Culture Park from August 15 to 24 with the theme “Art Haven: Fringe.” Dedicated to expanding the world of art, Seoul Fringe Festival is an independent creative arts festival where artists from diverse fields team up to present original artworks through a collaboration of performing arts, music, exhibitions, media, and others.

Visitors will be able to enjoy theatrical and dance performances at the plaza deck, open-air stages, and the maintenance building. In addition, visitors will be able to interact with artists and creators through various events. For example, the Fringe Cinema showcases independent movies and offers a chance for the audience to communicate with the movie directors, while the Fringe Art Workshop provides an opportunity for artists and the audience to discuss topics related to arts.

Tickets cost 30,000 won for one day and can be purchased on-site. Considering the distance of the festival venue from the ticket booth, visitors are advised to purchase tickets at least 30 minutes before an event time. Also, performances with limited seats require visitors to sign up ahead of time, with registration available 1 hour 30 minutes before the show.
