First shows revealed for Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2024 - On The Mic

First shows revealed for Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2024

The first 276 shows span many genres of the Fringe programme, including cabaret and comedy shows.

This year, the Edinburgh Festival Fringe Society is encouraging audiences to start planning their Fringe experience as early as possible; to support the artists, venues, producers, promoters and all the participants of this world-renowned festival.

Shona McCarthy, Chief Executive of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe Society, said: “It is always special to see the first batch of shows that will be performing at this year’s Edinburgh Festival Fringe. Those working across the Fringe have been preparing for this moment for months – laying the groundwork for artists to come to this year’s festival and the creative explosion that is August in Edinburgh. Being able to browse the first set of shows always adds an extra level of excitement. It’s a reminder that the 2024 Fringe is just around the corner, and it feels a lot more real for the whole Fringe community. I encourage audiences to support those performing at the Fringe this August by browsing shows and booking tickets as early as you can.

“It’s no secret that the cost of putting on a Fringe show can be a barrier to attending, and our role is in supporting artists in every way that we can, whether that’s keeping registration fees affordable, sourcing low-cost accommodation, seeking out direct routes to funding, or simply providing advice and information. Our Artist Services team is on hand to offer advice around every aspect of putting on a show, so please do reach out to us.”

Comedy performers include some familiar famous faces at the Fringe: Rosie Jones (pictured) and Chloe Petts are are at the Pleasance: Jason Byrne, Jessie Cave, Rob Auton are at the Assembly; Fern Brady is at the Edinburgh Playhouse; Jimeoin is at Just the Tonic; Catherine Bohart is at the the Monkey Barrel; and Geoff Norcott and Rhys Nicholson are at the Underbelly.
