Things may be big at the New York International Fringe Festival, but the Philadelphia Live Arts Festival and the Philly Fringe can match it for number of shows, and far surpass it for number of venues. According to external relations director Sarah Anton, the eighth edition of the Philly festivals boasts a total of 214 shows at over 100 locations citywide. The festival has always distinguished between adjudicated productions and nonadjudicated, self-produced shows that follow the open admissions policy established by the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Hence, in the Live Arts Festival, shows are grouped into programs such as Bodies in Motion and Other Places.
