With Scotland no longer in Level 0, Fringe-goers can now enjoy late night entertainment, drinking and clubbing as part of the Fringe 2021.
As with every Edinburgh Festival, there many different venues located across the city.
Despite the bulk of venues being situated in the heart of Edinburgh’s Old Town, several are scattered beyond this area and can be found in New Town areas like Stockbridge, as well as Leith and Musselburgh.
Here’s what you need to know about this year’s venues, including which venues will be hosting shows and performances online and how to use our Edinburgh Fringe venue map.
How many venues are there at the Edinburgh Fringe?
According to the Festival Fringe website, there are 135 venues in total this year.
Many of these venues are based online after the bulk of Fringe events for 2020 moved into the digital sphere, with ticketed live-streams of events, comedy sets and stage performances continuing to be hosted online in 2021.
As with every Fringe, venues are varied and offer a wide range of shows and genres of performances to choose from. Bannerman’s, Banshee Labyrinth, Pilgrim and Whistlebinkies Live Music Bar are all playing host to PBH Free Fringe events for those looking to enjoy cheaper nights of comedy and music, while big hitting venues like the Underbelly and Assembly have returned to George Square Gardens.
theSpace is once again hosting a range of comedy and theatrical shows at venues across the Old Town such as at Surgeon’s Hall, Symposium Hall and on the Royal Mile.
Where are this year’s Edinburgh Fringe venues?
To help you navigate this year’s Edinburgh Festival Fringe, we have compiled this year’s venues on an interactive map of Edinburgh – showing the address, venue number and location for every venue listed on the official Fringe website.
Every purple star icon on our interactive map represents a different Fringe venue, which you can click on to find a full name, street address and venue number.
You can zoom in and out on the map by using the ‘+’ and ‘-’ icons located on the top right of the map, and use the pivot tool underneath these icons to view the map from a different angle.
What are the Edinburgh Fringe 2021 online venues?
