Hear, and hear! The Edinburgh Fringe Festival is upon us. I've never heard of it? No worries! That's what I'm here for. 🙂
Edinburgh (announced) ed-in-buh-ruh) The Fringe Festival is the world's largest music festival held for three weeks during the month of August. In 2018, it lasted 25 days and featured more than 55,000 shows! There's a reason called "the world's largest platform for creative freedom."
Interested? Good! Here is a quick guide to the Fringe Fringe that won't book your flight to Scotland ASAP!
Before the fringe Festival, the Edinburgh International Festival was (EIF), which was also a celebration of art and music, it was just a few formal ficilna should be invited to perform. In 1947, the Fringe Festival was formed when a large number of exhibitors offered to host their shows.
Surprisingly it is at & # 39; the corner & # 39; & # 39; EIF and so the name was created!
Today the Edinburgh Fringe is significantly bigger (in terms of performance) than the EIF. In fact, it is bigger than any party in Edinburgh! The main reason for this is because it is an opening ceremony.
That means absolutely anyone can do it, no invitation is required. This means you get a lot of different skills and abilities which makes it a great experience!
What to do?
Much like what we are not doing there right now ?!
Take a look at some great art exhibitions including the largest performers. I'm talking about some totally obsessed with watching experts. The most popular of comedy acts so get ready for a laugh. But because it is open access, you can expect everything from theater to cabaret to opera to classical music!
Where is it happening?
All in Edinburgh!
There is no proper venue for the Fringe Festival. In fact, there are over 300 sites registered for the festival! These cover a wide variety of areas including street corners, restaurants, cafés, and major venues such as traditional theaters.
Although there are only 300, each site has a lot of points that executives can put on a show so there really are over a thousand performance areas.
Want to know how special this festival is? In the past, exhibitors offered the back of a motorcycle, a taxi, and even a portable toilet. Yep, you read it right! There are also street producers who are often found in the Royal Mile – a large pedestrian walkway just during the festival.
If you are visiting the festival, be prepared for the activity of almost every meter you walk. It is still a bit weak fun!
What Are the Essentials?
Choosing a show that goes out is a daunting task as everyone has their own unique tastes and tastes. One of the best ways to get on the show is to wander the streets and see what you stumble upon.
However, the first place to look is the official Edinburgh Fringe Festival website where the show was first announced. On the pages, you can filter a show type, save your favorite shows, and create your own thinking & # 39; Fringe & # 39; Alternatively, check out local news sites, check out return shows, or watch previews of these great sites.
Do I need a ticket?
Yes and no.
It really depends on the shows you choose to attend! Some locations require prepaid tickets, while there are also free shows that offer end-of-season donation choice.
How do you plan?
Honestly, the best way to plan it might be… not. Make sure you have the right clothing for the weather and where you are, but you might find it better to see where the day and activities are going! If you are a planner and need * to have a specific design, calculate where you want to eat, maybe get a show or two and get out there!
Some of the best shows are found in a good location.
But, be aware that as the holidays are popular, hotel prices increase and write quickly, so for that part, we'll plan ahead!
A visit to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival will have you laughing, crying, sleeping, even epilepsy, and of course drinking alcohol so don't miss the party on the bucket list!
