Travelling to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival

The Edinburgh Fringe Festival is a vibrant, 3-week, event full of creativity and talent, in various locations around the historic backdrop of Scotland’s capital. This globally renowned festival offers a range of entertainment and inspiration, attracting artists, performers, and culture enthusiasts from around the world and you can trust Jet Assist to be your travel companion that matches the energy and ensures your journey is as marvelous as the festival itself.
In 1947, during the Edinburgh International Festival, which celebrated European cultural life after WWII, eight theatre groups arrived, uninvited, to perform. Despite not being part of the official program, these performers staged their shows on the fringe of the festival, coining the name – the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. This started a movement and more, uninvited, performers arrived year after year to perform in Edinburgh, and the Festival Fringe Society in 1958 was established to support this, thus creating the Fringe Festival. From this spontaneous artistic movement, the Fringe has grown into the world’s largest arts festival and attracts millions of people every year to produce and enjoy art in every sense.
Known for its very different and dynamic program, the Fringe features thousands of shows across hundreds of venues, from grand theatres to intimate pubs – an example you might have seen recently is Richard Gadd’s “Baby Reindeer” on Netflix, where he performs in a small pub at the festival. Every street corner becomes a stage, and every moment is an opportunity to witness something unique, and often very impressive. The Fringe Festival encourages attendees to have a spirit of exploration, embrace the unexpected, and immerse themselves in the atmosphere that pulses through the city.
