Full name: Adam Rawcliff
What will you be doing at the Fringe? Now that I have my accommodation sorted I’m applying for bar staff roles at any of the big Fringe venues. I’m a jazz musician but have never been to the Edinburgh Fringe and this is a way for me to catch as many of the acts as I can and to fund my trip at the same time!
Are you a seasoned pro or newby? Newby!
How long are you staying for? 3 weeks
Type of pitch: BYO tent
How did you hear about Edinburgh Festival Camping? The participants mailer sent from Edinburgh Fringe.
Why did you decide to camp? I’m a keen camper and it’s a bit more sociable than other places when you’re on your own. Also it’s a lot more affordable!
What most excites you about the Fringe this year?  Being able to experience and see shows for the first time!
