Southside Fringe with the support of Glasgow City Council – Local Area Partnerships in Pollokshields, Langside & Southside Central, are creating an online virtual programme of events for 2021 ‘Plugged In & Wired’.

Applications for pre-recorded video material are invited from Southside creatives. Focusing on our programme genres of comedy, music, cabaret, spoken word, literature, food and drink, with artists being invited to submit to an online gallery.

Successfully chosen works will receive a fee from Southside Fringe and curated content will be used to create a virtual backbone for Southside Fringe 2021. Our ‘Plugged In & Wired’ programme will be starting earlier than our usual May Festival timetable this year and will be launched and accessible to the public in March 2021.

Southside Fringe will work with successful acts and artists to encourage further income for them from the successful virtual curated content, whilst encouraging donations from the public toward the festival.


This programme is funded with help from the Area Partnerships, as such, to be eligible for consideration in all categories you have to be a creative living in Wards 6, 7 or 8 on the Southside of Glasgow. The person submitting the proposal must live in one of the following postcode districts: G5, G41, G42, G43, G44 or G51. If you live outwith the eligible areas but have a previous history performing or exhibiting with the Southside Fringe, please still apply as they have a small allocation of their own funds we can commit to quality content. You will be asked on the form to demonstrate which years and shows you previously participated in.

Please read through the eligibility, general guidelines, filming support, submission standards and information for your genre.
