The Fringe is back in the capital! After missing out on a full festival as a result of the pandemic, Edinburgh is gearing up to welcome the world again.

Dating back to 1947, the Fringe has entertained us for decades while celebrating the best that art and culture have to offer.

For three chock-full weeks, Edinburgh will play host to tourists, locals, performers and producers from across the globe to present new shows, delight audiences and discover shining new talent.

As the whole city hosts the festivities, here’s how you can see all the venues hosting events.

Edinburgh Fringe Venues

The list of venues hosting events for the Fringe is extensive, with 273 listed on the website.

 A full list of the venues can be found on the Edinburgh Fringe website here.

You can also view this interactive map that shows all the participating venues across the city.
