In 2018, SUMMERHALL is holding a brand-new 10-day series called SOUTHERN EXPOSURE, all taking place in its central courtyard. Events include music from Scottish legends to ambient jazz, a completely revamped take on the annual FestivALE, an outdoor ceilidh and film screenings.
Shonen Knife are a ground-breaking all-female Japanese, pop-punk rock trio formed in Osaka in 1981, when Naoko Yamana first heard late ‘70’s punk-pop, particularly The Ramones.
Join us for an evening or two of fresh new work across all genres, hosted by Mamoru Iriguchi. We’ve put together some exciting artists who’ve been working on ideas that they are now ready to share with an audience for the first time.
FestivALE, Summerhall’s sell-out beer festival, returns this June – this year, we’ll be moving outside into the courtyard as part of Southern Exposure and we’ll be revelling in the festival spirit and midsummer sunshine.
