The Edinburgh International Festival presents a rich programme of classical music, theatre, opera and dance in six major theatres and concert halls and a number of smaller venues, over a three-week period in late summer each year.
Every August, the Edinburgh International Festival transforms one of the world's most beautiful cities, presenting three exhilarating weeks of the finest creators and performers from the worlds of the arts - for everyone.
The atmosphere in the city is something special. The Daily Telegraph said - ‘not just the most thrilling, beguiling, preposterously enjoyable place on Earth; it is also wonderfully addictive.' Or as The Spectator suggested, ‘you can sleep in September'.
