The Edinburgh Festivals have 12 great festivals year round to keep you occupied. Collectively, the Edinburgh Festivals are the largest cultural event of its kind in the world. With a record-breaking number of shows and performances - 2453 at the Fringe alone, let alone Jazz, Hogmanay, Science and Storytelling - taking place at hundreds of venues spread throughout the city, keeping track of plans can be a little challenging. Fortunately, help is at hand.
EdinburghFestivals.co.uk offers an interactive itinerary planner, which enables busy festival-goers to maximise their time and get the most out of their experience.
This feature allows you to create and tailor daily programmes for yourself, with all the information you need just a click away. The website has comprehensive listings for every show from every festival, as well as links to the appropriate ticket vendor. Once you have decided on what you would like to see, you can make an informative personal schedule covering all your festival activities. Individual items can easily be edited or changed, keeping all of your planned events in one easily understandable and accessible form. Not only does the tool enable you to plot your itinerary for the whole of your time in Edinburgh, it also shows you the quickest route for moving between multiple shows on the same day. This information can prove invaluable if you find yourself needing to rush from one venue to another.
