The sixth Edinburgh International Magic Festival transforms into a world of dreams – a hub for magic, illusion and wonder. Audiences are invited to embrace the adventure as some of the world’s most accomplished magicians take over Edinburgh’s Summerhall this summer from 26 June – 4 July 2015.
MagicFest held at Summerhall for the first time, launching a brand new festival hub
Magic and Variety Gala Show moves to Festival Theatre, home of the Great Lafayette
New MagicFest Opening Night Party with live show tasters
New adult magic classes for first time this year
New late night ‘witching hour’ shows for adults only
This year Summerhall, Edinburgh’s ‘Art Laboratory’, is the new MagicFest hub creating an irresistible world of wonder and adventure with live shows, exhibitions, food, drink and doughnuts all at one magical campus.
Kevin McMahon, Artist Director of Edinburgh International Magic Festival, said: “We’ve dreamed of having MagicFest on one site since we started the festival back in 2010, so it’s incredibly exciting to takeover Summerhall for 8 days and pack it full of magic. Imagine entering a portal, and winding up somewhere where the normal rules don’t apply. It’s kinda like that but with drink and doughnuts.”
