What are the dates for next year's Edinburgh International Festival?

The provisional dates for the 2022 Edinburgh International Festival are 5–29 August.

Can performances from the 2021 Festival be viewed online from home?

Selected performances have been recorded and will be broadcast for free, on our website and via our media partners. All details are available now on our At Home page. If you’re having any trouble viewing a performance online, please visit our At Home Support page.

What determines which events are available online and for how long?

Much like our live performance programme, our digital season is created in collaboration with artists and producing partners. Sometimes everyone involved will benefit from a longer run to give audiences more time to see the work. In cases where we have agreed to keep the work online for a shorter duration, it is because there’s another appearance elsewhere or there's a preference to mimic the experience of a live event.

Do you share City of Edinburgh’s commitment to 2030 net zero carbon emissions?

Yes, the International Festival shares the City of Edinburgh’s commitment to the 2030 net zero carbon emissions target. You can read our environmental action plan on our Sustainability page.
