Edinburgh Festival is the largest arts festival in the world and
has been running since 1947. It comprises mainly the International
Festival and the Fringe Festival, with a smaller jazz festival,
a film festival and a book festival running at more or less the
Both Festivals showcase international talent, though the International
one focuses on world class acts in the areas of music, opera,
drama and dance, while the Fringe concentrates on giving space
to hundreds of smaller, innnovative, wackier music and drama groups
- that perform all day and much of the night too, just about anywhere
there is space for a couple of chairs.
Fringe standards vary from sensational, next generation world-beating
artists, to totally crap performers who embarrass everbody in
the theatre except themselves.
The whole three week event, set in beautiful, walkable Edinburgh
at the best time of year is a must-do at least once for anyone
interested in the arts, but book accomodation well ahead.
