Virgin Money Fireworks Concert

This year’s Virgin Money Fireworks Concert brings Edinburgh’s summer festival season to a spectacular conclusion, now on the last Monday evening. With a celebration of dance music the concert sets stirring and delightful music with an outstanding and sparkling visual extravaganza. The breathtaking fireworks display is specially choreographed by international fireworks artists Pyrovision.

E Strauss Steam Powered polka (fast, op. 70) 
Brahms Hungarian Dances nos. 1,3 & 5 
Mozart Contradances from K603 and K609 
Lumbye Copenhagen Steam Railway Galop 
Dvorak Slavonic Dances from op. 46 
J Strauss II Emperor Waltz, op. 437

During the day schools from throughout Edinburgh will be invited to enjoy a concert in the Ross Theatre in the run-up to the Fireworks Concert. The Edinburgh Secondary Schools Orchestra and members of the Scottish Chamber Orchestra’s Vibe project present a special programme of live music.

Due to the popularity of the concert you can take advantage of a limited number of Priority Entry tickets, gaining access to the Gardens at 7.00pm, a full half hour before the gates open to standard ticket holders at 7.30pm. 

As ever, ticket holders for the Ross Theatre don't need to rush to secure their spot and so can take their seats once gates are open to everyone.

Please note, tickets must be collected from Hub Tickets no later than 8.30pm on Monday 31 August.
