Up is stoked to be a Festival Partner of the Melbourne Fringe Festival in 2020.

Melbourne Fringe democratises the arts through cultural democracy – empowering anyone to realise their right to creative expression. It supports the development and presentation of artworks by, with and for Melbourne’s citizens.

We’re stoked to announce we're a Festival Partner of the Melbourne Fringe Festival in 2020. We’re glad to be able to support its amazing artists and deliver awesome benefits to Upsiders.

Up for Festival ArtistsMelbourne Fringe Festival for Upsiders

Up For Festival Artists

2020 has been less than great for many artists and the Arts in general. We’ve designed our partnership to help you save for your festival funds while giving Up a try on the way.

Our hope is that by leveraging our partnership you’re free to create your creations and sprinkle our lives with pixie dusts of joy.

Kickstarting Your Festival Fund Savings Account

Every artist registered with the Melbourne Fringe Festival can kick start their festival fund with $20 on us. All you need to do is join Up using the unique code sent to you by Melbourne Fringe. If you didn't get one, get in contact with the Festival organisers.

Think of it as Up buying the first ticket to your show.

Sign up is easy, the account is free and it only takes minutes. Join more than 225,000+ Upsiders and try the future of banking.

Just download the Up app on your device and follow the prompts to enter your invite code. In just a few minutes you will have started your Melbourne Fringe Festival funding journey and have one of the most innovative bank accounts out there.

Invite code conditions apply. New Up customers only.
Artist invite codes expire 1 December 2020.

Funding Your Festival Kitty By Hooking Up Your Mates

It takes a village, right?

If you like Up (and we reckon you will) invite your mates to join and get up to $10 each! Sling them an invite through ‘Hook up a Mate’ and you’ll both get $5 when they join. Get another $5 each after they make 5 purchases in their first 30 days as an Upsider.

A little here, a little there. Every bit counts! We hope this gets you on your way to paying for your Melbourne Fringe Festival registration fee… or maybe that glitter cannon you’ve been eyeing off… either or.

Hook Up a Mate conditions apply.

Funding Performance Venues

Venues have done it extra tough recently and we’re getting behind them to show a bit of extra love as they get back on their feet.

We’re excited to be partnering with a number of Melbourne Fringe Festival’s venues in 2020 by offering unique venue registration codes. Punters willing to sign up to Up using the venues' unique code will score their venue $10, plus they'll also get $10 they can use to buy their Melbourne Fringe Festival ticket.

Invite code conditions apply.


What’s Melbourne Fringe Festival without the awards recognising some of Australia’s best talent. This year we’ll be awarding:

  • $1,000 to the artist that wins the Up People’s Choice Award

  • $500 to a voting member of the Melbourne Fringe Festival community

Can You Feel It?

We're super excited to see what you create and hope to meet you along your Melbourne Fringe Festival journey. We encourage you to explore whether Up’s right for you and hope to partner with you soon.

Fringe for Upsiders

We’re pretty excited about the benefits we've got planned for Upsiders, but aren't quite ready to announce them yet. Stay tuned Upsiders.
