The Fringe

The Boar'sWELCOME TO BRECON FRINGE 8 - 11 August 2019

Brecon Fringe Festival 2019 takes place in Brecon, which is a lovely, largely unspoilt, Georgian market town in the heart of the Brecon Beacons, Mid Wales. 

The Fringe is an open-access event, which means gigs and events over the Fringe are organised and funded independently by local landlords, venue owners and individuals*.

Incidentally there is no official committee - which is probably why Brecon Fringe is so successful - we expect you all know the definition of a 'committee'!  You can take it from us that no camels are involved in the Fringe!

Brecon Fringe Festival offers opportunities for local bands to perform (as well as bands from further afield). It also brings money into the town, and this money goes into local businesses therefore directly supporting theBrecon community.

Come to the Fringe if you like blues, rock, R&B, comedy, dance, art and alternative performances as well as occasional bursts of jazz. There are also child friendly events at venues such as Pilgrims at Brecon Cathedral.

This year the streets are closed and trade and food stalls along with free street entertainment have been organised by the Brecon Jazz Festival so do check this out - along with Brecon's wonderful independent shops and cafes which are here all year round, of course.

Please use this site to search for a band, venue or event time. A printed guide containing both Fringe and Jazz listings will also be available during the festival.


Most Fringe events are free while others charge a nominal fee. Please contact individual venues for specific information.

Please contact us on 07926 196714 if you require general information or for press and media enquiries.


Note: *Most venues book their own bands but some are booked by Angus Kings 07866 000596.
