New Details Emerge on 2012 Edinburgh Festivals

The Edinburgh Festivals, which draw massive crowds to the city each summer, have announced some details of this year's events. Among the highlights will be the world premiere of a new work by James MacMillan, a series of major public art commissions in the New Town, a World Dance Feste, the first-ever World Fringe Congress, a World Jazz Orchestra directed by Joe Temperley, and The Edinburgh World Writers' Conference 2012.

As part of this year’s international celebrations marking the 60th anniversary of The Queen’s accession to the throne, the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo’s Diamond Jubilee themed production is Scotland’s Salute to the Monarch. With specially commissioned music, dance displays, state-of-the-art production technology and graphic installations, the 90-minute show—which also celebrates the Year of Creative Scotland—will help contribute to the national celebrations
