ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — Organizers of the 2019 KeyBank Rochester Fringe Festivalhave announced almost the entire lineup Monday morning.

More than 550 performances and events are scheduled to take place at more than 20 venues downtown. The theme of this year’s Fringe – “Leap a Little” – is meant to encourage attendees to try something new, and reflects both the accessibility and diversity of the Fringe, festival organizers said Monday. 


The U.K.'s Massaoke will return this year to perform its signature rock-anthem show, MixTape, on Friday, Sept. 20, and its Massaoke: Night at the Musicals show on Saturday, Sept. 21, the final night of Fringe. Both shows are free.  

Staples like the Spiegeltent, the Cirque du Fringe and the Silent Disco will all be back.

This year's headlining act for the Fringe Festival will be actor and comedian Mike Birbiglia.

The 12-day festival runs from Sept. 10-21. Tickets go on sale Monday, June 17 at noon.
