August 2016

Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo

05.08.16 - 27.08.16
Edinburgh, Scotland.

The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo showcases the best military bands, pipers and drummers, dancers and display teams from across the world every August as part of the wider Edinburgh Festival. On average 217,000 people see the Tattoo live on the esplanade of Edinburgh Castle and it has sold out in advance for over a decade.

With an electric atmosphere combining magnificent music and military theatre set against the backdrop of Edinburgh Castle, the Tattoo really is unmissable. Lively dancing, humorous routines, impressive lighting and fabulous fireworks complement the skilful musical performances, including the thrilling massed pipes and drums. Every night the Military Tattoo ends on a poignant note as the Lone Piper performs from high up on the castle ramparts.
