The Edinburgh International Festival is the world’s leading multi-genre arts festival. For more than three weeks in August, Scotland’s capital hosts an unparalleled celebration of the performing arts and becomes an annual meeting point for people of all nations. Every year the International Festival brings to the Festival City the finest performers and ensembles from the worlds of dance, opera, music and theatre.
Behind the scenes, we endeavour to be good citizens of our city, our country and the world; to offer a view that is resolutely international; to give artists the best possible conditions to perform; to provide a positive, professional and caring workplace; and to offer those who live, work, visit and study in our city inspiration, motivation and fun.
We do all this through partnerships with the private and public sector. Continued investment in the International Festival not only supports delivery of each annual event but also creates employment opportunities across the City for permanent and seasonal workers; and, we hope, enriches the life of all those who engage with us.
We are delighted to be a strategic cultural partner of the Edinburgh Chamber of Commerce and look forward to contributing to the work of the Chamber and all Members.
