Edinburgh International Festival
The flagship Edinburgh International Festival (EIF), a high-brow assembly of some of the world's best music, opera, theatre, and dance companies, was launched in 1947 as a stage for peace and unity in Europe after the Second World War. It was out of the Festival that the now massive Edinburgh Fringe sprung and grew in subsequent years.
