Technically in August there are 5 festivals as follows:
- Book festival
- Art festival (visual art), much of which is free.
- 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.
