What is the Fringe?
The Edinburgh Festival Fringe is the world's largest arts festival, surpassed only by the Olympics in terms of global ticketed events.

From big names in the world of entertainment to unknown artists looking to build their careers,
the festival caters for everyone and includes theatre, comedy, dance, physical theatre, circus, cabaret, children's shows, musicals, opera, music, spoken word, exhibitions and events.
