As part of its 2013 Adelaide Fringe Festival sponsorship, Internet service provider (ISP), Internode, has launched a free Web-based ‘Fringe Favourites’ service that enables attendees to plan and share their festival itineraries.
The feature, which is not exclusive to Internode customers, is designed to simplify the selection process and provide users with greater visibility to 900-plus events.
It can be found at the bottom of every page on the Adelaide Fringe Web site, giving festival goers the ability to shortlist shows they wish to see, purchase tickets, and share personal plans with friends on Facebook.
“Internode Fringe Favourites is a brilliant concept encouraging greater interaction by the public with the Fringe program,” Adelaide Fringe director, Greg Clarke, said. “Creating your very own ‘best of list’ and sharing those choices with your friends is going to encourage a lot more people to go and see a lot more Fringe shows.”
The Adelaide Fringe Festival will run from February 15 to March 17. It features more than 900 events at pop-up venues in parks, warehouses, lane-ways, and empty buildings, as well as established venues. Internode has sponsored the event for the past decade.
