Edinburgh International Festival 2017

Every August, the Edinburgh International Festival transforms one of the world's most beautiful cities. The International Festival’s success is built on an uncompromising commitment to virtuosity and originality, inviting some of the finest creators and performers from the worlds of theatre, music, opera and dance to offer a unique experience for audiences. The Usher Hall is proud to host 23 outstanding events as part of the 2017 festival, which celebrates its 70th birthday this year.

In advance of the festival, tickets can only be booked via the Edinburgh International Festival (not the Usher Hall).  Click here for a list of our EIF 2017 shows.
