WELCOME TO THE FREE EDINBURGH FRINGE FESTIVAL....

Sadly the 2016 Free Festival is now over, but we'll be back in August 2017!  Browse this website now to see what was on at the 2016 Free Edinburgh Fringe Festival, which ran from August the 4th to 28th 2016, with four extra days of the 'Fringe for Bairns' - our children's Fringe Festival  from July 31st to August 3rd (and with children's shows continuing right through the Fringe).

We had some new exciting venues for you to choose from, and a another big selection of the very best free show - with a the usual massive comedy selection, along with three brand new music stages, some fantastic cabaret, theatre, children's shows, spoken word a walking tour and some busking. As always there was so much to choose from!

We hope to follow the success of 2016 in 2017, our shows and performers won or where nominated for numerous awards, an amazing recognition of our programming. We will start the application process for shows for the 2017 Fringe in December. 

We had a hugely critically acclaimed Fringe last, with a huge bucket-load of five-star reviewed shows and even more four star reviewed shows - which proves our free shows are a sign of top quality Fringe shows, while we let performers and audiences experience the freedom of the Fringe, with a chance to experiment and enjoy. Just what the Fringe should be!

Do check out our programme using the calendar or search tool on the left of this page to see what was on in 2016, and we hope to see you in Edinburgh through the Fringe month of August again next year! Our programme for August 2017 will be live in May 2017.

Running The Free Festival costs a lot of money... some of this money is recouped through sponsorship, advertising and our comedy courses... If you would like to contribute and help keep the venues free for acts and audiences, please click button above
