Adelaide Fringe organisers are calling on performers, musicians, visual artists, arts organisations and event producers from across the globe to register for the 2017 Adelaide Fringe.

Every year Adelaide Fringe attracts thousands of talented artists who transform the city into a magical wonderland unlike any other festival landscape in Australia. The Fringe is the largest arts festival in the country and it is made by the artists taking part.

Adelaide Fringe Artistic Director & CEO Heather Croall said anticipation was building to see the wonderful array of inspiring artists who register for the 2017 event.

"The wonderful thing about Adelaide Fringe is that anyone from anywhere can register a Fringe show. In 2016, more than 4400 artists registered across a staggering 1124 events," Ms Croall said.

"Adelaide Fringe fosters new talent, independence and risk-taking, which makes it the perfect place for artists to trial new, ground-breaking work. We're excited to see what new ideas, innovative thinking and new talent emerge as part of the 2017 program."

Events can be registered under various categories including cabaret, children's event, circus and physical theatre, comedy, dance, film, interactive, magic, music, special events, theatre, or visual art.

An artist information session will be held at Mama Jumbo at 12 Eliza St, on Wednesday, August 24, from 6.15pm-7.30pm.

Artist registrations and venue registrations are open until Friday, October 7, at 5pm.

The 2017 Adelaide Fringe runs from 17 February until 19 March.
