Edinburgh Festival Fringe
COVID-19 UPDATE FROM THE EDINBURGH FESTIVAL FRINGE:
Following the announcement that the Edinburgh Festival Fringe will not be going ahead as planned in 2020, the Fringe Society has unveiled alternative digital plans taking place this summer, complementing a variety of activities planned by Fringe artists and venues.
Under hugely difficult circumstances, creatives from across the Fringe landscape will be bringing versions of their work to life digitally, many for the very first time. From livestreamed performances to nostalgic throwbacks and community-focused events and support sessions, the spirit of the Fringe will live on in the work of thousands of Fringe artists and venues, and the Fringe Society will help audiences navigate them through a central listings service on edfringe.com. Alongside this, the festival will be running a series of digital activities, including virtual shows, a festival-wide crowdfunding campaign, artist-facing workshops, a new online arts industry platform and a virtual Fringe Central.
What makes it special?
- Totally open-access, the Fringe is proud to include in their programme anyone with a story to tell and a venue willing to host them.
The Fringe boasts a diverse range of shows including comedy, musicals, exhibitions and events for children.
This festival doesn’t just attract performers and visitors from all around the world, it’s also a hotspot for creative producers and the media scouting for the next big talent.
