About our $5 Digital Fringe Backer ‘Button’

100% of Hamilton Fringe Festival ticket revenue goes directly back to the artists. That makes the purchase of a Digital Fringe Backer ‘Button’ an important way for audiences to support the festival itself. Proceeds from this year’s Digital Fringe Backer ‘Button’ will help the Hamilton Fringe Festival to continue thriving, giving future Fringe artists new opportunities to share their work with you.

In order to begin the ticket buying process, every Fringe patron must make a one-time purchase of a $5 Digital Fringe Backer ‘Button’, either as part of a pass or buying the ‘Button’ separately. After purchasing your Digital Fringe Backer ‘Button’, you will have your choice of Accessible | Kids, Regular, or Support the Artist Tickets. Remember you only need to buy the ‘Button’ once for the duration of the festival.
