Internode will again sponsor the Adelaide Fringe Festival, for 2013, providing free wireless Internet coverage for Australia’s largest arts festival.
As a major sponsor, the ISP will provide free Internet access via Wi-Fi hotspots around the Fringe Club, Rundle Mall and other Fringe locations.
Internode has sponsored the Fringe for the past decade.
Internode’s Adelaide Fringe sponsorship comes just two weeks after the company’s announcement that it is Presenting Partner for next year’s WOMADelaide Festival, which runs alongside the Fringe.
Internode founder, Simon Hackett, said, “By providing free wireless Internet access throughout the Adelaide CBD, including at many Fringe venues, Internode helps people to quickly and easily find what shows are on and where they’re located."
The 2013 Adelaide Fringe last week unveiled its poster for next year and announced its Fringe 2013 ambassador - comedian, performer and TV host Paul McDermott.
Running from February 17 to March 15, 2013, the Adelaide Fringe has more than 900 events at pop-up venues in parks, warehouses, lane-ways and empty buildings as well as established venues such as theatres, hotels, art galleries, cafes and town halls.
WOMADelaide is part of the global cycle of WOMAD (World of Music Arts and Dance) events held around the world each year.
It is the second year that Internode has sponsored WOMADelaide.
As part of its sponsorship, Internode will also live-stream, in high definition, a number of performances from Internode Stage One via its national Content Delivery Network (CDN), making WOMADelaide accessible to music-lovers who can’t attend the festival in person.
After attracting a near capacity crowd of 87,000 this year, WOMADelaide will return to Botanic Park, Adelaide, from March 8 to March 11, 2013.
