Edinburgh Fringe Launches 2016 Program

Saturday, June 11, 2016   (0 Comments)

The Edinburgh Festival Fringe has launched its full program for 2016, boasting 50,266 performances of 3,269 shows from 48 countries in 294 venues across Edinburgh. Edinburgh Fringe is one of the largest arts festivals in the world and takes place every August for three weeks in Scotland’s capital city.

Shona McCarthy, Chief Executive of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe Society said, “The breadth and diversity of talent that comes to the Fringe is unparalleled, and this year is no exception. At its core the Fringe is an open access festival, which welcomes anyone with a story to tell, and for that reason, amateur and professional artists from around the world continue year after year to come here to share their stories, hone their skills, create new opportunities for themselves and their work, and celebrate the joy of live performance.

The diversity of the Fringe’s participants is echoed in its audiences and there really is something for everyone at the Fringe, whether you enjoy puppet shows or comedians, astonishing street artists or dazzling cabaret acts, ground-breaking international theatre or underground musical sensations, the Fringe will surpass your expectations over and over again.
