The Edinburgh Fringe Festival kicked off last week which hosts an array of entertainment including music, comedy, theatre and dance. This year the Edinburgh Fringe Festival runs for a period of 25 days (1st August until the 25th) in which the population of Edinburgh doubles with people all over the word visiting to become a part of it all. In keeping with the start of the festival and the celebration of one of the largest arts festivals in the world we have put together a playlist on Pure Connect of famous Scottish music artists in a host of genres. From indie rock from the likes of Franz Ferdinand and The Fratellis, electronic with Chvrches and Calvin Harris or if you’re feeling extra cultural give Celtic rock band Runrig a listen.
You can listen to the playlist here.
Alternatively if radio is your channel of choice, the BBC is broadcasting the best from the Fringe. Check out BBC Radio 3’s Queen’s Hall series which presents fifteen episodes featuring concerts from the Queen’s Hall in Edinburgh. You can listen to BBC Radio 3 live here, or on any of our digital radios.
