Edinburgh Fringe 2017

The Edinburgh International Festival may have come first, but generally it's the Fringe that Edinburgh is best-known for. There's really nothing quite like it - "the largest show on Earth".

The stats bear that out: 2016 saw 50,266 performances of 3,269 shows from 48 countries in 294 venues across Scotland’s capital city. It's a sprawling, anarchic, sleepless month of live performances. There are 643 free shows and 164 pay what you want shows at the 2016 Fringe.
