Atlanta Fringe Festival Announces The 8th Annual ATLANTA FRINGE AUDIO

The Atlanta Fringe Festival is thrilled to announce the return of Fringe Audio for the eighth consecutive year, bringing together audio artists from around the country to present radio dramas, investigative journalism, storytelling, and special interest podcasts exclusively via the Atlanta Fringe's website and affiliated podcasting networks starting Friday, May 15. This year's crop of shows promises to be especially compelling, including murder mysteries, storytelling showcases, ensemble comedies, and even full-blown musicals. As always, all shows will be available completely free of charge.

This year's edition of Fringe Audio, the only podcasting network of its kind on the international Fringe festival circuit, includes a new element: shows are eligible for a cash prize determined by a panel of judges and industry experts, evaluating the shows both on the quality of their work and their ability to garner listeners. Once this judging period is over the shows will also remain online, free of charge, until the 2021 Atlanta Fringe Festival in June.

"We're so excited about getting to bring all these shows to the global audience we've been building over the years," says Atlanta Fringe Executive Director Diana Brown. "We're, of course, disappointed that we had to cancel the live performance aspect of this year's Fringe, but it's awesome that we still have one aspect of our festival that can still go on 100% as planned, with so many talented artists who have been sharing their great, professional work with us year after year after year."

In addition to being available for free on the website - www.AtlantaFringe.org - all shows can be found on all the major podcasting networks including Spotify, iTunes, Stitcher, TuneIn, iHeart Radio, with more TBA. Highlights of the past years of Fringe Audio can currently be found on Spotify (link: https://open.spotify.com/show/7d9HU6hynFiMozuCnzVZbr)
