The festival is ‘Unjuried’ which means that anyone is allowed to participate in the show. The performances are split into a variety of categories, ranging from opera to comedy.
Comedy is the biggest of the categories, mainly down to the Edinburgh comedy awards. Major comedians such as: Ed Byrne, Frankie Boyle and Tim Vine performed at the 2017 festival.
The festival’s mixture of experienced comedians and touring ‘newbies’ that really makes the comedy section of the Fringe unique.
Visiting the Festival
Edinburgh has plenty of hotels, however, the high-demand of the festival results in the guests (you) struggling to find a hotel that suits your needs at the time that you need accommodation.
By hotel switching you can avoid the panic of not being able to find accommodation for huge event, such as the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
Hotel switching is where you stay in 2 hotels for your trip instead of 1 – it’s that simple. Switching allows you to take advantage of the way that hotels price their rooms.
Because of the fact that hotels price their rooms on a nightly basis, switching allows you to stay at a hotel on its cheaper nights and then move to another hotel when your original hotel’s prices increase.
