All I can say is: largest arts festival IN THE WORLD. For 50 years, Scotland's capital city has seen a unique explosion of creative energy within the Fringe Festival. It's got EVERYTHING- street performances, theatre, comedy, literature, politics, culture... it's incredible. And you don't need more than 100 GBP to keep yourself busy with all the free and cheap tickets to see so much talent. Oh yeah, and it's a month long. Can you say PARTY?
