Getting ready for Edinburgh Fringe

German performers at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2017

The 2017 edition of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe welcomes a range of performers from Germany. Featuring comedy, contemporary dance, cabaret, classical music and much more there is – as always – something for everyone in the programme.

The world's largest arts festival is back from 4-28. For 70 years the Scottish capital has played host to the fesival that started as an act of defiance, and has grown into a festival of arts with thousands of performers that is turning Edinburgh into a colourful stage for three weeks.

Just like last year, Germany will be represented by numerous acts, ranging from comedy, through to classical music to contemporary dance and theatre performances.
