Edinburgh International Fesitval, 2009 - the coming highlights
The 2009 Edinburgh Festival - 14th August - 6th September
I can't quite believe it - but it looks like I am going to be in London/Edinburgh during the time of the Edinburgh International Festival. I have just been looking at their web site - lovely design - and lots of ways of finding out what is going on. See here, for the main site.
I especially like the way they have integrated lots of social media plays into their publishing/media/engagement strategy - see here for the detail.
In the meantime feast your eyes on the production values of this Vimeo piece. There are 15 others to look at as well. Class act all round. Would be great to see some of the local Australasian festivals taking notes on all this?
The Edinburgh Fringe
The Edinburgh Fringe Festival is a parallel universe, and it's best not to confuse the two. It also has slightly different dates - 7th - 31st Aug, 2009.
Fringe web site/Programme
Their web site is a bit pedestrian - here - and some of the information is past it's announce date - but they do have a pretty neat My Fringe feature - and a lovely online digital magazine of the programme, here
