Nordic Fringe Network Global Artist Call- OPEN!

We are completely excited to announce that the global Artist Call for the Nordic Fringe Network is now open! Apply: here.

What is this NFN global artist call? Well, its the chance for artists to apply for not only RVK Fringe Festival, but 6 other festivals across the Nordic countries as well, all in one application. This makes your dream of touring all the Fringes all summer long a reality.

You can find the artist guideline and application here:

The deadline for applications is 30 December, so get going and get in to Fringe!

Find a quick rundown below, then check out the Artist Guidelines for more details.


  • All festivals will have their own digital and/or printed program brochure.

  • All festivals will have separate administrative organisations meaning you will still have to submit your program copy and visuals separately.

  • Venue conditions and festival formats are also going to vary between the different festivals.

  • The admin fee involved will vary from location to location. Some festivals take application fees. Other festivals take out an admin fee once you’ve been accepted to the festival and been allocated in the official programme. (Please note: Reykjavík Fringe Festival has a 35 euro application fee)

  • You will have separate artist agreements.

  • Some of the festivals will run additional local artist calls that cater to the local arts industry.

  • Most of the festivals are wrapped up with FRINGE AWARDS. The artist that are nominated or awarded in any given category go into an artist pool used to source “Nordic Fringe Seasons” talent for upcoming sister festivals in Europe, Australia and US.

The festivals have got one thing in common: the aim to elevate the local through the global and to offer the audience unique experiences outside of the traditional, to push boundaries and promote artistic innovation and bravery.
