Support Artists and #UnleashYourFringe - On The Mic

Support Artists and #UnleashYourFringe

A new batch of shows to be staged at the 2024 Edinburgh Festival Fringe has been revealed today.

1,647 shows are now listed on the edfringe website with more set to be announced on Thursday 09 May. The official programme launch will take place on Wednesday 12 June.

Audience members are encouraged to start compiling their favourite shows and booking early to support artists, using the hashtag #UnleashYourFringe in the run-up to this year’s festival.

As ever comedy and cabaret feature prominently at the Fringe. Many artistes have chosen to perform as part of more than one show. This includes Ivo Graham (pictured), with his stand-up show Grand Designs at Pleasance, his theatre show Carousel at Assembly and as the host of Comedians’ DJ Battles at La Belle Angele.

Shona McCarthy, Chief Executive of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe Society, said: “It’s super exciting when a new batch of shows gets announced – you can really feel the momentum gathering as August gets closer and closer! I can’t wait to get stuck in and add some more shows to my favourites list – and to book a few in, just in case they sell out.”

“Artists are the backbone of this festival and they’re at the heart of everything we do at the Fringe Society. Booking tickets in advance, adding free and unticketed shows to your favourites list, giving shout-outs to artists and companies on social media using #UnleashYourFringe – these are things that Fringe audiences can do to show some essential early support and boost morale for the artists they love. So if your fave is coming to Edinburgh, or if a show tackles an issue that’s close to your heart, get it locked in now!”
