The Fringe Festival - The Art Lover's Heaven

August - time for the famous Fringe Festival. First time when I heard this, I didn't have any clue about it as usual. Then went on searching to find about the same.

What is this all about?
  • Largest art festival in the world
  • Talented artists from the big names to the unknowns
  • Which includes theatre, comedy, dance, physical theatre, circus, cabaret, children's shows, musicals, opera, music, spoken word, exhibitions and events.
  • 300+ venues, 50,000+ performances from 3000+ shows - that's huge.

I thing the art lover will stay around this place for the entire month for sure. It is a heaven for them.

Frankly speaking, I don't know anything about art, but I certainly enjoyed the whole place filled with people and performances. For me everything was entertainment. So my formula, art = entertainment! That make sense now. 

Every nook and corner of Edinburgh had something related to the festival. Free entry to various venues, flee markets, art collections, discounted dining at the restaurants and drinks - lot of options to explore and to enjoy during the festival.

I am not sure whether you have experienced the pain in the eyes in a hurry to grasp every view around you on a travel. It happened to me. I didn't want to miss out anything around me during the whole walk and it gave really tough time for my eyes.
