Edinburgh International Festival (EIF) 2001

The "official" festival around which the other Edinburgh festivals have developed.

The web site carries a searchable program and background information on the EIF. Tickets are now on sale - some shows (like the fireworks concert) sell out quickly. Secure booking is available through eif.co.uk.
