Organisers of The Edinburgh International Festival have announced the line-up for this year’s much anticipated event, with a Polish version of Macbeth and an adaption of My Fair Lady set to feature.

Unveiled on Wednesday, the cultural extravaganza will host 3,000 artists from 47 nations. The festival will coincide with the London Olympics, which is hoped could lead to increased attendances.

Running from 9 August – 2 September, the Scottish capital will be a hive of activity and will include performances of dance, opera music and theatre, as well as a display in which thousands of runners will set off in luminous suits bringing Arthur’s Seat to life each night for the NVA’s Speed of Light art installation.

It could be the perfect event to enjoy whilst taking a British summer vacation in the Scottish capital. Why not book one of the excellent Edinburgh hotels for the perfect base in this beautiful, vibrant city.
