Hmm...Must be the first annual...International?

"presenting over 300 shows in twelve days at 30 venues" could be a problem for the authentic street performer.

"Membership fee"? Hmm...

Lurk edumication

Fringe festivals usually work like this.
You pay to get in.
They provide you a venue and take a cut from tickets to cover expenses.
Sometimes they provide tech and other times not.
What you get for your fee is inclusion in their marketing.
The organised ones also provide slots for further promotion re radio station interviews and sometimes TV.
They are an umbrella organisation that basically help with accom, venue, promotion
'Authentic' Street performers can choose to stretch themselves and do something either inside or at some prearranged outdoor venue.
A pure 100% authentic super saturated solution of street performer would have no interest in a fringe festival unless it was big enough to swell the streets enough to make it more worthwhile than normal.

.."The local public, tourists, reviewers and anyone else you
can drag in off the streets will see your show."

The venues are here

Its not a street theatre festival.
It should however favorably impact on performance friendly people in public.

You seem a little disgruntled. I like that.
