We launch Summerhall’s 8th festival into an unpredictable and challenging world. Our programme brings together a diverse group of artists who are doing their best to make sense of what’s going on.
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.
A special all-day event featuring some of the best Scottish acts: Stanley Odd, Emma Pollock, Broken Records, Be Charlotte, Babe, Modern Studies, Withered Hand + more TBA!
Continuing EIFF’s annual retrospective event, we are delighted to bring the wonderful and rarely seen Monterey Pop to the outdoor screen at Summerhall. Sets by Siobhan Wilson and Lomond Campbell will precede the screening.
