Edinburgh is the world’s favourite Festival city with over 43,000 performances taking place across the 11 Festivals year round - so there is a lot of data here! We’re excited to be able to open this up to let third-party developers interact with what is on offer. There are some straightforward terms and conditions for using the listings, so please make sure you've read over the licence before accessing the data.

What's available?

The API provides all the publicly available listings for the following 11 festivals - there is sometimes a short delay between a festival's public programme launch and the listings appearing in the API but we aim to keep this to a minimum. Note that events do get changed and updated throughout the year.

It's now easier than ever to include the festival listings on your own website!
