@edintfest celebrates 70 years with digital spectacle, #Bloom!

Edinburgh International Festival is an unparalleled celebration of the performing arts, and has become an annual meeting place for peoples of all nations. For three weeks every August, the International Festival welcomes some of the finest performers and ensembles from the worlds of dance, opera, music and theatre to Scotland's historic capital.

70 years after the founding of #EdintFest, Edinburgh has bloomed magnificently as the world’s Festival City, and its impact has pollinated cities across the globe, propagating new festivals throughout Europe, America and Asia.

To celebrate 70 years of international creativity, collaboration and unity, #EdinburghInternationalFestival will open with #Bloom - an epic outdoor spectacle transforming St Andrew Square into a magical night garden through light and sound installations and large-scale projection. Stroll around the Square as the buildings burst into life – immersing you in a fast moving world of colour, texture and sound.

#Bloom is produced by the multi-award winning @59_productions, the design team behind the Opening Ceremony of the 2012 London Olympic Games, the David Bowie Is exhibition, and @edintfest's previous opening events, the critically acclaimed #TheHarmoniumProject and #DeepTime.
