2020 programme announcement postponed

In light of the rapidly changing Coronavirus situation, we have decided to postpone the launch of the 2020 Edinburgh International Festival programme, including the planned media briefing tomorrow and the digital launch on Wednesday.

It is important to emphasise that we are still planning to deliver a Festival this August but we think it best to wait a number of weeks before launching our programme.

We are working as quickly as we can to provide certainty to everyone. Our focus remains on presenting the Festival, getting artists back on our stages and audiences back into concert halls and theatres as soon as it is safe to do so.

Please bear with us whilst we navigate staging an International Festival at a particularly unusual time.
