Over 300 more shows have registered since programme launch on 08 June, making the app (alongside edfringe.com) one of the best places to find up-to-date information on every show at Fringe 2023. 

As previously announced, the 2023 app will include many features familiar from previous years, such as the ability to filter listings by genre and to find shows starting soon using the ‘nearby now’ function. App users will also be able to book tickets and store e-ticket QR codes in their account area, and booked performances will be integrated into users’ daily show schedule. Entirely new functions will allow users to never miss a show by enabling notifications for their next show, while audiences looking for inspiration can use the ‘shake to search’ feature, providing them with a random show suggestion.  

The development of the official 2023 EdFringe app would not have been possible without the generous sponsorship from Playbill, the support of Synetec, Johnnie Walker Princes Street, and support from EventScotland. We'd also like to send a shout-out to our fellow fringers at Perth’s Fringe World Festival, who made the initial introduction to the app’s developers, equ

Shona McCarthy, Chief Executive of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe Society, said: “We’re thrilled that the app is out of development and ready to download, giving eager Fringe-goers yet another way to find new shows and discover their new favourite artists. I’d like to encourage everyone to explore the various features on offer – particularly ‘shake to search’, introducing them to entirely new and random show suggestions – and to fill their boots when it comes to booking shows!” 

The official EdFringe 2023 app is available to download now. Users will be invited to submit feedback on the app and make suggestions on new features, which will go towards the development of the EdFringe app in future.
