This will be the last-ever Village Festival in Edinburgh Gardens, so we are calling on everyone to come and celebrate this arts institution one last time.
The festival is fundamentally an experimental artistic playground in which new work, new collaborations and new artforms are explored. This year, more than 350 individual artists are involved in creating more than 140 arts experiences, spanning music, theatre, kids programming, participation, food and visual arts.
Highlights include a new Sunset Ritual, the return of The Famous Village Dog Show, premieres from Bunk Puppets, a new performance tavern called Ship of Jewels, and The World Kitchen.
Plus a hidden world lies beneath the surface. Curious? Tell us that you are MESMERISED!
