Edinburgh Festival Fringe

180 High Street, Edinburgh

Together with Edinburgh’s other summer festivals the Edinburgh Fringe Festival constitutes the largest arts festival in the world. This annual event kicks off in August and features a wide-ranging programme of theatre, music, comedy, dance and children's events. The Fringe started life as a nefarious alternative to the more high brow Edinburgh International Festival with a notorious ‘anything goes’ attitude. Today it hosts both more mainstream comedy acts, as well as challenging and topical performers who often don’t shy away from controversy. Myriad venues range from grand spaces like the Assembly Rooms, through to converted student unions and on to church halls and even, on occasion, bizarre adapted spaces like Edinburgh Zoo.
