A total 655,541 tickets, worth $16.2 million, were sold for the 2017 events, a 9 per cent increase on last year’s record sales.

The festival, which wrapped up last week, saw more than 1100 events and performances take place in the city’s major venues, as well as smaller suburban venues.

Adelaide Fringe director and CEO Heather Croall said she was pleased to see locals and visitors immerse themselves in the “festival wonderland that the Fringe has to offer”.

“The energy here in the city – plus at an increasing number of suburban and regional venues – has been absolutely electric. It’s been astounding to see such a huge turnout of Fringe-goers across the 31 days of the festival,” said Croall.

“To have another year of record ticket sales just goes to show that our Fringe artists and events continue to offer the quality, diversity and eccentricity it takes to keep the romance with our festival well and truly alive.”
