Fusebox is an annual contemporary art and performance festival that is entirely free to attend.

Help us continue to bring the world's most groundbreaking and adventurous artists to Austin; commission and support local artists; and host artist talks, workshops, and other professional development opportunities. All completely free-of-charge. 

Festival is a 501(c )3 non-profit in accordance with the standards and regulations of the 

Internal Revenue Service (IRS).  

It's not a membership, it's Adventureship!

Fusebox is so much more than a festival.

Donate today to support Fusebox Festival and our year-round calendar of activities:


  • Performances, talks, and events ranging from guitar shredding to 60-second performances to site-specific digital projections to presentations of some of the leading performing artists from around the country and world. Every Fusebox event gives our audience the opportunity to experience unexpected, experimental, and adventurous art.

  • Collaborative civic initiatives across sectors that address Austin's most pressing concerns, including affordability, health, and mobility. 

  • Written & Spoken, Fusebox's digital platform for new writings, podcasts, articles, and digital projects about contemporary art + performance.
