Fringe (or EdFringe) is a three week event taking place in August in the Scottish town Edinburgh (see map) with day performances on the Royal Mile and many other events to which you are simply invited by the performers or their colleagues distributing leaflets.
We spent around five hours on the Royal Mile. The day events take place only at the upper part of this street, but the performers change. Some of them perform on small stages with a strict timetable (changing each 20 minutes), some just pick a spot or walk there and back. So just walking the street down or up you see new faces and new performances.
