We’re all gearing up for another mind-altering August. Throwing our money at capricious strangers, accepting strangely-shaped rooms at wonky times in scary buildings and hoping that, somehow, this equals success. In 2016 Fringepig launched its first printed copies, distributing 20,000 copies and two editions over the course of the Fringe. And we’ll be doing the same again this year.
We’ve had an arse of a time just lately. We intended to go to three editions this year, but alas print costs have more than doubled. Apparently Brexit is a large factor: the paper and the ink all come from abroad, and combined with a price adjustment that was due anyway it has all added up to a big fat dent in the side of the good ship Fringepig. But no matter. Our prices have STILL reduced a bit from last year because that’s what we said we’d do. And we know we can sell more of them this time round.
So, to business. We need your stuff! If you are into writing, drawing or design and you’d like to be a part of Fringepig 2017 just get in touch. We’re contactable through this website, via Facebook or on Twitter. If you’d like to advertise with us this year, contact sales@fringepig. You can also call Martin directly on 07399 689004. It’s early doors yet; we’ll update the page soon with rates and details. Suffice to say we cost a fraction of the likes of Fest and Three Weeks, and our reach is just as wide. Plus, people actually read Fringepig. It’s full of deep, dark and delicious Fringey stuff.
We intend to be the best publication of the festival season and the ONLY one that is on the side of performers AND the paying public; always recommending, never reviewing.
