Every show at this year's Fringe will be listed on our website in time for August – take a look at what's been announced so far!

As mentioned above, we'll be adding more shows on a monthly basis up to programme launch on Thursday 07 July. Shows can keep registering right up to and even during the Fringe, so it's worth checking back now and then to see what's been added.

You can use search filters to create a list of shows that are relevant to you – for example, using a certain date range depending on when you'll be in town, or focusing on specific genres you want to see.

The official Fringe programme

Our printed programme contains information on almost every show at this year's Fringe – if you'd like to get hold of one, you can:

  • pre-order online so it arrives ahead of programme launch on Thursday 07 July
  • pick one up in person from the Fringe Shop at 180 High Street, Edinburgh
  • pick one up from one of many select distribution points around the UK.

Travelling between venues

While Edinburgh is quite a compact city, it can be extremely busy in August, so it's worth leaving plenty of time to get from show to show (even if the venues appear to be close together).

This also applies if shows are at the same venue – many venues have multiple performance spaces, and it can take time to exit one show and join the queue for another (especially if you want to grab some food, visit the bar or use the facilities in-between).

Some venues will not admit latecomers once a show has started, so make sure you leave plenty of time for travelling between shows, and try to avoid booking them back-to-back.

Leave time for surprises... and the rest of Edinburgh

One of the delights of the Fringe is discovering something completely unexpected, so while it's a good idea to book in advance for any shows you don't want to miss, we'd recommend leaving some gaps to squeeze in those unpredictable word-of-mouth wonders.

It's also worth remembering that the Fringe takes place in Edinburgh, one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Take time to see the sights, visit tourist attractions and spend time in some of the city's many cafes, bars and restaurants.
