"A Festival Like No Other" Fringe Festival Tip by Marpessa

Fringe Festival, Edinburgh: 25 reviews and 36 photos

  Audience participation
by Marpessa

The Edinburgh Fringe Festival is an awesome place to be in August. Wander around, watch street performers from around the globe (one act I saw was a German guy playing the didgeridoo and another instrument from Cameroon). You have people doing plays, singing, comedy, beat box. There's stalls set up with plenty of arts and craft, get a henna tattoo or your hair braided.

You will also end up with handfuls of pamphlets of acts for other festivals as well. You're only problem will be deciding which ones to go and see!

Address: The Royal Mile, Edinburgh.
