Holy Fringe! Final 2016 Hollywood Fringe Festival Numbers

The Hollywood Fringe Festival has released final numbers on its 2016 event:

  • The Festival sold over 56,000 individual tickets.
  • Ticket sales have increased more than 300% since the inaugural festival (2010).
  • The festival sold an estimated $447,000 in tickets this year.
  • Approximately 60% of all tickets were “Fringe-sold” (sold directly through the Fringe’s website and box office) and the remaining 40% of transactions were “venue-sold” (sold at the door of participating venues).  No matter where tickets were sold, all sale monies ($447,000) are returned to the Fringe artists and venues.
  • In its seven year history, Hollywood Fringe has returned over $1.8 million to artists.
