The Sydney Fringe Festival has released details and opened ticket sales for the full 2014 program presenting from 1 until 30 September at 60 partner venues across inner Sydney. The vibrant program includes more than 300 ticketed productions, spanning theatre, music, comedy visual art, film, cabaret, musical theatre, dance, circus, literature and poetry.
