The Biggest Shows Coming To Edinburgh in 2024/2025

There's some seriously big names on the list!

Stunningly green and gothic, the jewel of Scotland is famous for its dramatic hills, ancient history, and enchanting yet walkable cobbled streets. Not only does Edinburgh excel at putting out fires (if you didn't know, It was the first city in the world to have its own fire service), but it's safe to say that it knows a thing or two about putting on a show, after all, it hosts the largest arts festival on the planet, the Edinburgh Festival Fringe!
