6 Music Festival Fringe

Everything you need to know about the BBC Radio 6 Music Festival Fringe

The BBC Radio 6 Music Festival Fringe is a separately ticketed free event running during the daytime on both days of the Festival, next door at the Victoria Warehouse hotel.

Tickets for both the Fringe and the main festival are now all gone.

The BBC Radio 6 Music Festival Fringe will run in two sessions each day between 12-3.20pm and 3.40-7pm. 

There will be several rooms to discover, named in honour of some of BBC Radio 6 Music’s favourite bands.

Listen to 6 Music from 1pm on Friday and Saturday as we broadcast live from the heart of the Fringe - and you can watch all the action on the 6 Music website too!
