    The month of August sees thousands of tourists descend upon Scotland’s capital city for the infamous Edinburgh Fringe Festival. With the city’s population almost doubling at this time, surveys show that the majority of the half a million visitors flock to Edinburgh for the notorious comedy scene. However, running parallel to the 3,000-odd shows that fall under the Edinburgh Fringe is Edinburgh Art Festival, the UK’s largest annual festival of visual art. The festival brings together the capital’s museums, galleries and artist-run spaces to create an extensive events programme which celebrates UK and international artists across all ages.
