The Edinburgh Festival Fringe is, despite its name, an integral part of the Edinburgh Festival which takes place every August. It started in 1947 when some performers arrived uninvited at the main Festival and put on impromptu shows. By the mid 1950s it was an organised event with ticket sales, although it also attracted opposition from the traditionalists which lasted until the 1970s. Now it bills itself as the “biggest arts festival in the world” and in 2009 presented more than 2000 shows.
Anyone can bring a show to the Fringe. The organising body does not commission work or pay fees, but acts as an enabler providing information and support to participants and selling tickets. Given its origins as an alternative to mainstream arts productions the shows tend to be more experimental and based on theatre or comedy, although dance and music also figure. Many productions which premièred at the Fringe went on to become major hits and several comedy careers were launched in one-man Fringe shows. Every possible venue is utilised, from the city’s theatres to church halls.
As well as the ticketed events, there are on-going street performances to add to the festival atmosphere.
Edinburgh Festival takes place every year in mid August and early September. By definition, Edinburgh Festival does not apply to only one single event. It refers to a lot of events that take place at the same time simultaneously. For instance there is the official International Festival that takes place in operas, theatres and stages all over the city. Every year different plays are shown like Macbeth and other Shakespeare plays and some contemporary plays. It brings together top performers of music and dance.
An alternative to the festival are the Fringe and the Free Fringe Festivals--a performing arts festival, taking place mainly on the streets of the city. It usually shows more unusual and not so official performances, sometimes even experimental ones, that might not even be allowed to be performed in official venues.
In addition to that, there is also the Military Tattoo that is a is celebration of the Commonwealth and includes displays by the British Armed Forces and some military bands.
For book lovers, there are also the Book Festivals.
