Edinburgh festival cancelled – due to concerns about the Covid-19 pandemic

First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has said the cancellation was “heartbreaking, but the right decision”.  She confirmed the decision to the Scottish parliament Wednesday 1 April.

The Edinburgh International Festival and the Fringe, the world’s biggest arts festival, will not take place for the first time in more than 70 years.

The Military Tattoo, Edinburgh Art Festival and Edinburgh International Book Festival have also been cancelled.

The events attract audiences of about 4.4 million people each August.  More than 25,000 artists, writers and performers from 70 countries take part in 5,000 events in the Scottish capital each year.
