The M1 Singapore Fringe Festival is an annual fringe theatre festival in Singapore. In additional to theatrical performances, it hosts art installations, live music, and a forum. It is organised by The Necessary Stage, a non-profit theatre company. The festival occurs each January with a different theme, such as "Art and the People" (2014), "Art & Loss" (2015), and "Art & the Animal" (2016).
The tenth M1 Singapore Fringe Festival took place in 2014. It had a higher attendance than any previous M1 festival. It was after this festival that The Necessary Stage instituted a policy of appointing a new artistic director every two years. The company intends the two-year tenure to give each director time to realise a vision for the festival, while building relationships with artists and curators.
