In August Edinburgh is festival City!

Technically in August there are 5 festivals as follows:

  1. Book festival
  2. Art festival (visual art), much of which is free.
  3. The royal Edinburgh military tattoo. Featuring performances including bagpipes.

4. Edinburgh international festival. A performing arts festival based around select theatres.

5. Edinburgh fringe festival. Around the International festival other venues started during festival hosting performance arts this has become a festival in, it’s own right called the Fringe.

It is therefore quite confusing, to get head round what happens in August. I’m trying and will share what I learn! Any tips welcomed.
