Bringing together a diverse range of musical talent from around the globe and picking up where T on the Fringe left off, the new Edge Festival promises to wow with a spectacular line up in Scotland’s capital city.
Celebrating the flavour of the Edinburgh Fringe with a seven night run at St Cecilia’s, will be ex Throwing Muses front woman Kristin Hersh. Hersh’s live spoken word project ‘Paradoxical Undressing’ will incorporate film, music and essays and feature excerpts from her upcoming memoir of the same name. A one off preview show will take place at Cabaret Voltaire on 13th August to give fans a taster of this unique performance.
Elsewhere acts such as Kate Nash, Maximo Park, Broken Records and Scouting For Girls will all no doubt prove to be the festivals other main crowd pullers.
Taking place across various venues ranging from 250 – 2800 in capacity, from the 1st – 27th August, the contemporary music strand to the Edinburgh Festival will feature a phenomenal fifty performances over the festival period.
The Edge promoter Dave Corbet said:“The atmosphere in Edinburgh throughout August is truly incredible with the world’s top performers coming together to celebrate the arts. The Edge will deliver the best in contemporary live music to an international audience and offer music lovers the chance to sample gigs by artists from across a variety of genres – everyone from Maximo Park to Pendulum and Michael Franti & Spearhead to Midnight Juggernaughts. I’m also looking forward to announcing a whole host of additional acts including a couple of very special guests, details of which will be unveiled later in July.”
