Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2015

Finally, after years of hearing about how great the Fringe was, I was able to experience this festival. I had only pre-booked tickets for Trevor Noah, who was absolutely AMAZING!!! I had accidentally arrived at the venue early, which turned out to be a good thing – the queue ended up being very long. While walking around Edinburgh during the Fringe, I saw posters for Stephen K Amos, so I ended up buying tickets for his show aswell – which again, was hilarious. Alot of the big comics use the Fringe to try out new material and see which jokes get an applause and which ones don’t. There were alot of performances along the Royal Mile – both music and theatre. Towards the bottom half of the Mile (away from the castle), there were stages set up with allocated performances during timeslots; here there were also allocated corners for busking. I thought this set-up was amazing, it ensured every performer was heard and had their moment. I noticed that people also had very interesting ways of handing out flyers (see photos below).

Below are a few videos that I shot during the Fringe, they aren’t the best quality but you can at least experience the Fringe!

I wish I could have gone to more gigs, but I still managed to see loads given the short period that I was there. The Fringe Festival was a creative hotspot for performers from all genres of the arts – particularly my favourite: COMEDY!
