Edinburgh Festival Anyone?

Recommended Posts

Is anyone going to, or performing at the Edinburgh festival this summer?

I'm going to be there 15-19 August. I haven't been before and am really looking forward to it.
If anyone else is going along and fancies meeting up, let me know.

And if anyone is performing, defintely let me know and I'll try and catch your act.!

The band I play with will be doing our thing once again.

I usually try to get over for at least a few days. This year? Dunno, but I'll be scheming and plotting...

Always a huge treat. Played at the festival for many years. Great memories. :)

Can't really avoid it since I live here... might try and be more proactive about actually seeing some shows this year instead of just scowling at tourists.

Right, I've booked a ticket and I am coming to see your band on Sat 18th! :)

Anyone else going to be in Edinburgh next week?
Let me know if you want to meet up.

I avoid it like the plague. Only ever relented to get dragged to see Johnny Vegas (early days) and Guy Pratt. Saw the latter twice: first time - great fun, entertaining with a touch of bass playing; second time - sh*t.

I live here - been to see stuff every day since it started this year, mind you much of it has been free stuff with variable quality.

I have a buch of buddies over next week and we're doing 4/5 shows per day for a long weekend which has became a bit of a trdition for us. If you're stuck for company between shows gimme a shout and you can grab a pint with us. The more the merrier so that goes for anyone else who is knocking about. I'm happy to provide an email/mob number upon request......following all the necessary police checks ;)


gjones
Might try and get to your gig one night, maybe next Wed as we've nothing booked that night.

Some locals hate the festival but I've found it to be a great experience I guess its not for everyone!

Thanks krispn. I'll be there with some friends but our plans are quite fluid. We're not all doing the same things at the same time.
I'll PM you. :-)

Just to say it's best to get there early because the early birds get the comfy seats and it's usually packed out.
