Acts from the world-famous Edinburgh Fringe will perform at Edinburgh Airport for the first time as the terminal becomes a new showcase venue.
From August 2-24, a selection of performers will give visitors a taste of the Fringe with 20-minute-long performances on the airport’s Plaza area, with a stage being set up next to the famous ‘EDINBURGH’ sign. Working with MLA Talent, acts will be sourced throughout the festival to keep the daily schedule fresh and exciting for passengers.
Edinburgh Trams will provide free travel for the performers who will also showcase their acts on the journey to and from the airport.
Gordon Dewar, chief executive of Edinburgh Airport, said, “Edinburgh’s festivals are renowned across the globe and every year we have visitors flying in from all over the world to experience it for themselves, which brings a great atmosphere to the city.
“There’s no better way to welcome visitors to our fantastic capital city than giving them a taste of the festivals from the moment they land, creating that positive start to what we hope is a memorable trip to Scotland and Edinburgh.”
