Edinburgh’s summer festival season runs through the month of August. Catch the tunes of the Edinburgh Jazz and Blues Festival from July 31st-August 9th. The event brings more than 100 concerts to venues around the city. Edinburgh International Festival and Edinburgh Festival Fringe (the largest arts festival in the world) run nearly simultaneously for three weeks in August and feature thousands of world-class concerts, plays, comedic and dance performances. With 12 festivals throughout the year there is more than enough for everyone. If you’re itching to get a taste of another culture- this is a great way to dive right in!
