Help the Fringe get our festival vibe started as we crown the ultimate artist-on-the-move at the Battle of the Street Performers on Friday, August 3! From 7 to 9 p.m., we will have a collection of street performers spread throughout Mass Ave. As you walk around and enjoy First Friday, stop by to check them out. You might see magic, music, dancing, juggling, or even meet some unique characters…who knows! If you like what you see, help your favorite artists rise to the top of this Battle. In the world of street performers, a quarter equals a vote, so vote early and often in their tip jars. At 9:15 p.m., we’ll gather the top three vote-getters under the IndyFringe lightbox (corner of Mass Ave and College). In this fierce finale, they’ll show off their act for the crowd to make the final call and crown our Champion Street Performer! Then stick around as we toast the Fringe and light up the brand new 2012 IndyFringe artwork in the lightbox.
