Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2017 weather forecast

Edinburgh castle

Fri 4 AugMon 28 Aug 2017

As one of largest cultural events in the world the Edinburgh Festival Fringe attracts a global audience who enjoy the best in music and the arts.

The festival began when groups of uninvited performers turned up to play at the newly formed Edinburgh International Festival. Even though they weren't on the official bill, this did not stop them from performing.

Over the next few years more and more groups arrived in Edinburgh and performed to whoever would listen, until 1959 when the Festival Fringe Society was created to respond to the growing trend.
