Last few Performer Electric Pitches available!

We released the very first Performer Electric Hook Up Pitches earlier in the year and we still have a couple left! Available from 1st – 26th August, our Performer Electric Pitches are discounted alongside the Performer rate.

 

WHAT DOES IT MEAN?

 

If you are a Performer or Festival Participant (stall holder, backstage or venue staff) and you want an Electric Hook Up pitch for a minimum of 14 nights, you can still get it at a discounted rate! These additional Electric Hook Up points will be next to the tipis in the Countryside area, so it’s a prime position too!

– Standard Performer rates £13 per adult per night
– Child £5.50 per night
– Electric Hook Up Fee £9 per night
(Standard 16A Electric Hook Up – that’s just enough to cover our installation costs!)

 

WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO

 

We believe that the Edinburgh Festivals are extraordinary events and an opportunity for everyone to get involved in the Arts, both as spectators and performers. We believe that the Arts perform an important role within society, which can vary massively depending on each person – it’s entertainment, respite, an opportunity to learn, empathise and grow, to understand that you’re not alone in your struggles and to feel that sense of belonging (to name a few!) We aim to create a campsite that is affordable so everyone can attend these incredible Festivals and be a part of this.

 

A HOME-AWAY-FROM-HOME FOR THE LONE PERFORMER

 

Every year we provide accommodation for Performers and Participants working at the Festivals, many of whom are staying by themselves. We are very aware that performing is physically and mentally tiring, and it is really important that we create a safe and welcoming space for you to retire to at the end of the day. At our campsite, we’ll welcome you warmly and there will always be someone around to have a chat with. Our campsite is a community and our home for the month. All of our staff stay on site so we’re in it with you!

If you have any worries or anxieties about staying by yourself, please please come say hello and introduce yourself when you arrive. Our venue manager Alex will be around and he’s always happy to have a chat!
