Get an inside view of the Fringe by hosting a performer
13 March 2019
If you are a Fringe-loving Edinburgh resident, you could make your Fringe this year by hosting a Fringe artist in your home.
Over a third of Edinburgh residents attend the Fringe during August and this is another way to get involved with the artists that make this festival diverse, inclusive and amazing.
Why host an artist?
- It’s a fantastic opportunity to see the Fringe in a whole new light.
- You will be supporting the arts by offering digs at an affordable price.
- You will be part of ensuring that Fringe artists can continue to bring incredible work to our city each year, irrespective of background or financial status.
- It’s a good excuse to clear out the spare room!
Sound good? We’ve partnered with TheatreDigsBooker an established accommodation platform and together we’ve launched a new platform for Edinburgh residents to connect easily and safely with Fringe participants.

Shona McCarthy, Chief Executive of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe Society said:
“The Fringe Society is committed to making accommodation more affordable for artists at the Fringe, and I am delighted to announce this important step in tackling one of the biggest issues facing participants.
The Society is also delighted to welcome Queen Margaret University and Napier University as accommodation partners. Both are providing affordable rooms specifically for artists and I encourage other student accommodation providers to come onboard over the coming months.”
