Did you know that Edinburgh Festival Fringe is the largest arts festival in the world? And this year, the festival is celebrating its 75th anniversary! The Fringe will be on from the 5th until the 29th of August, a whole month full of spectacular shows to watch and keep you entertained. From theatre and comedy to cabaret and music (and so much more), head to the historic streets of Edinburgh to experience entertainment like no other!

Street Performances

From buskers to street performers to living statues, Edinburgh’s streets are filled with talent and entertainment during the Fringe. Throughout the festival month, you will also find skilled vendors such as portrait artists, caricaturists, hair braiders, palmists and face painters! Walking from one street performance to another is definitely a thrilling and memorable experience, one that you won’t find anywhere else. And don’t forget, if you like the acts and enjoy the performance, please put some money in their hat, as for some of the acts, their audience is the only payment method for these talented artists, and it will make their day!
