Edinburgh Festivals: the ultimate INSTAGRAM destination
Getting the best photos to share with your friends and followers has become a bit of a ‘thing’ over the last couple of years. Here’s why we think the Edinburgh Festivals and Fringe are the number one Instagram destination.
EVERY DAY IS DIFFERENT
The Edinburgh Fringe is the number one destination for Instagrammers simply because one day is so completely different to the next. The streets are filled with a constant rotation of street performers and buskers. On the Royal Mile, the Virgin Money stage presents a different act every 15 minutes, and huge crowds move around constantly making your snaps completely unique. No one will ever be able to recreate them, and the energy and creativity of the Festivals will blow your followers away.
ALL THE COLOURS OF THE RAINBOW
Everyone is here! The comedians and presenters we know from TV, the award winning authors we read about online, shows from Broadway and the West End, even Betty Grumble the Sex Clown. Everyone is invited to this MASSIVE party! African dance troupes, Samurai drummers, Chinese circus acts, sexy Burlesque girls and boys, we’re all here. Right here in Edinburgh at the world’s largest Arts festival you have the chance to capture the most colourful and unique photos anywhere this summer.
CITY OF CULTURE
Edinburgh is also a beautiful city, so talk about a backdrop for your incredible photos. Edinburgh Castle is steeped in history, and built upon a huge extinct volcano, and there’s great cafes, great coffee, whisky tastings, pipers, Harry Potter references everywhere (Greyfriar’s Kirkyard, I’m looking at you)… it’s a beautiful, old, culturally rich city.
HAVE YOUR CAKE AND EAT IT TOO
The other great thing about the Edinburgh Festivals is that it suits everyone’s budget. You don’t need to be rich to enjoy this event, in fact – you could go to the Free Fringe everyday, all day long and still see incredible shows. The Fringe was created by people who wanted the arts to be more inclusive, and so every year there are a number of reknowned performers who still insist on doing free shows. There’s no reason not to enjoy a weekend at the Fringe with free shows and incredible photos, when it’s not even going to dip into your holiday fund.
