5 Edinburgh Festivals for August
WHILE THE DATES here are for 2011, the festivals are annual events.
Art Festival: August 4 to September 4
From BBC News: There will be 42 exhibits at the Art Festival this year. The festival kicked off with “a larger-than-life-sized devil’s head made from thousands of match heads” set on fire. On a less incendiary note, the National Gallery of Scotland is showing 50 portraits of the Queen, and “Turner prize-winner Martin Creed has transformed the landmark Scotsman Steps by cladding each of the 104 steps in a different colour of marble.”
