The Long Pigs

The Long Pigs are a trio from the cream of Australian clowning and this time they have opened the box of clowning from the wrong end… Strange, engrossing, outrageous and terrific are some of the words to describe them. Catch the gang at Port Fringe as they roam the streets looking for something nice to eat…


The Satellites

The Satellites are undoubtedly one of Australia’s finest rockabilly and roots acts around. Hear them belt out the coolest of rhythms with a wild 50’s flavoured rockabilly tune and gravely vocal tones.


Elephant in The Room Productions

Elephant in the Room's ensemble does a deep dive into British culture from Queen and Jethro Tull all the way back to the classic greats like William Byrd and John Farmer. 


The Black Moth 

Dancer Wendy Dys performs a flamenco inspired  interpretation of the life cycle of the rare black moth. Accompanied by drummer Danial Harvey and featuring a backdrop painted by artist Martin Strauss.
