Music at the Fringe

Posted on

The Winnipeg Fringe Festival is one of the premier alternative theatre festivals in the world with a reputation for bringing evocative, hilarious, fascinating productions from across the globe.

Fringe Fest is also a great place to see Manitoba music, with dozens of shows spanning July 16 - 27 at its outdoor stage in Old Market Square; the heart of the historic Exchange District and "Fringe Central."

One of this year's offerings is a return performance of Pink Floyd's classic Dark Side of the Moon in its entirety by some of Manitoba's finest musicians. The show debuted at last year's Fringe to enthusiastic crowds and this year's players remain largely the same, including Twilight Hotel's Dave Quanbury and Brandy Zdan, Mike Petkau, and Vanessa Kuzina.
