The International Festival welcomes audiences back to live performances with temporary outdoor pavilions throughout the city.

We are thrilled that the Edinburgh International Festival will be marking the return of live performance to Scotland’s capital city after over a year of silent theatres and concert halls. Taking place from 7 to 29 August, the 2021 International Festival will use bespoke, temporary outdoor pavilions in iconic, easily accessible spaces throughout the city to safely reunite our artists and audiences to rediscover the magic of live performance.

Full details of our 2021 programme, which spans opera, orchestral and chamber music, theatre, and contemporary music, will be announced on Wednesday 2 June. Priority booking for International Festival members opens on Tuesday 1 June before general booking opens on Friday 11 June.
