To celebrate the 75th anniversary this year, the Edinburgh International Festival is giving away over 35,000 free tickets. This summer’s free programme features leading contemporary circus performers and world-renowned orchestras, as well as an immersive installation described as a ‘spa for the psyche’. These events are dedicated to the residents of Edinburgh, who have opened their city and helped to welcome the world to Scotland’s capital for the last 75 years.
The 75th Festival opens on Friday 5 August with MACRO, a spectacular free event at BT Murrayfield supported by EventScotland. Presented as part of the UK/Australia season 2021/22, critically acclaimed circus and physical theatre company Gravity & Other Myths joins First Nations dance company Djuki Mala, the National Youth Choir of Scotland and Scottish musicians. Over 15,000 free tickets are available now. Check out the website for more details.
