International Partners

You are here

For nearly 70 years the Edinburgh International Festival has led the world in presenting the finest international artists and companies in a cultural celebration which is known and admired across the globe, bringing Edinburgh alive with an explosion of sound and colour in an intoxicating annual programme of events.

Our international partners provide support at many different levels, from enabling the International Festival to present a soloist in recital to helping us transport and stage large scale productions. We simply could not present the International Festival without the tremendous support of our partners from the countries and regions where these artists and productions originate.

For our international partners, the benefits to be gained from their support are clear – the eyes of the world are on Edinburgh in August, and a successful International Festival production not only brings international attention to an individual performer or company, offering an unrivalled showcase for facilitating further international invitations, but also enhances a nation's cultural profile.
