Plan a day trip to the greatest festival on the planet

If you’re thinking of making a trip this summer, there aren’t many places more exciting than Edinburgh during the Fringe. The (already pretty gorgeous) streets of Scotland’s historic capital flood with life and colour as thousands of performers showcase their talents, offering a heady mix of theatre, comedy, music, magic and more. The world’s greatest arts festival in a first-class location – what more could you want?

Something for everyone

With more than 3,500 shows spread over 10 programme categories, the Fringe can be whatever you want it to be: a riotous late-night cabaret extravaganza; a family-friendly festival of fun; a place to catch cutting-edge talent and witness the rising stars of the future; knife-juggling street performance; all of the above, or something else entirely. 

Order a copy of our printed programme to see what’s on offer; better yet, check out the show listings that are online already so you can search, filter and favourite shows to #MakeYourFringe.
