Close to the edge - Edinburgh's fringe companion The Edge Festival 2010 line-up announced
Running alongside the Edinburgh Festival is The Edge Festival, dedicated solely to music from most genres but predominantly pop and indie, some big names, some not so big, but no less interesting. Dizzee Rascal, Plan B and Doves suit you for starters?
The festival, featuring several venues across the Scottish capital starts on Thursday 5th August with a Performance by Stornoway at the city's Liquid Rooms. The Oxford-band are fast becoming a must-see, prompted by the rather moreish album "Beachcomber's Windowsill", released last month. The festival then continues until Tuesday 31st August, with plenty to look forward to, with some of the highlights below:
Staying with the Liquid Rooms venue, further gigs include The Divine Comedy (6th - £20.25), Feeder (17th - £22.75), Steve Mason (18th - £9.70), Professor Green (20th - £11.70), We Were Promised Jetpacks (21st - £11.70), Eli 'Paperboy' Reed (23rd - £14.75), Dan le Sac vs Scroobius Pip (24th - £17.25) and the marvellous Broken Records (28th - £11.70).
Other main attractions include the HMV Picture House performances of Doves (6th - £21.25), Tinchy Stryder (13th - £17.75), Plan B (20th - £17.75), Eels (25th - £22.75) and Phoenix (28th - £20.25) - all on sale now and shifting fast.
Other highlights include the long-awaited return of Mull Historical Society (14th - Electric Circus - £15.25), a Soma Records night at the Cabaret Voltaire (20th - £9.70), Field Music at the Capital (23rd - £10) and the co-performer of the unofficial World-Cup theme "Shout", Dizzee Rascal at the city's Corn Exchange on the 26th - tickets £22.75.
