The Luna Fringe runs at the Luna Lounge in Leytonstone, London on the last Sunday of the month from 6.00 pm to 9.00 pm.

The event is eclectic in taste, featuring a range of musical styles from the edges of experimental music through to the slightly off-centre and quirky, although often with a heavy emphasis on improvisation. Many musicians, some from as far away as Taiwan or America etc have joined musicians from London and across the UK to create new music there in the basement of the Luna Lounge. Upstairs was formerly a restaurant, but is now a wine bar, with the basement providing a more secluded atmosphere for the kind of intense listening that this music requires.

The event is run by Noel Taylor, who is himself an active improviser (web site). In common with other series that run in London, it is run without funding and depends entirely on door money to pay musicians for their trouble.
