Adelaide Fringe has announced that for the first time in its 52-year history, festival-goers can access their program and buy tickets one month earlier, online.

Adelaide Fringe chair Judy Potter said the Fringe 2012 program has grown 20 percent since last festival to become one of the biggest arts festivals in the world.

“We are certain that by releasing the program and tickets earlier, we will sell more tickets for artists and take full advantage of the Christmas buying period,” she said.

The 2012 program features 923 events, including 250 comedians, 130 theatre shows, 170 concerts, and 110 art and design exhibitions.

Adelaide Fringe 2012 kicks off on February 24, with city-wide opening night celebrations, and runs until March 18.
