Edinburgh is the world's festival city - every year in August you'll encounter an atmosphere, electric like none other, with performers descending on the Scottish capital from all over the globe. We invited Edinburgh native and budding videographer Alastair Curtis-Walcott to team up with Dublin vlogger Jess Glynn to experience this year's opening weekend. Check out how they did in their mission to #UncoverEdinburgh…
The Edinburgh International Festival and Edinburgh Festival Fringe see more than 25,000 artists and performers put on more than 1,000 shows a day around the city, and only the Olympics and the Football World Cup sell more tickets than the city's major festivals!
